40s Vintage Cocktail Dress Women's LDB Extra Large Sequinned accents XL VFG
What a great 1940s Little Black Dress, with plenty of bling, and in a rare large size! The bodice has a vee neck and padded shoulders with shirring to shape the bust area. Three quarter length sleeves have pleating at the elbows for ease. The swingy skirt has 8 gores. The dress is lavishly embellished with curving patterns of black sequins, which scroll down the front of the bodice and onto the faux front peplum, creating a longer leaner line.
