30s 40s Vintage Women's Pink Prom Dress Long Formal Tiered Skirt Decorative Details Medium

$ 100.00 Sale Save

This vintage late 1930s to early 1940s party frock is loaded with charm! Wide vee shaped waist, gathered bodice with sweetheart neckline, short puffed sleeves ruched for extra drama. The bodice and the full two-tiered skirt are accented by decorative bands consisting of shirring, welting and contrast color zigzag stitching – sounds like a lot, but works beautifully, see close-up.

FABRIC/COLORS: Medium weight rayon faille, it makes that great swooshing sound associated with taffeta. Color is light coral pink.

 TAG: No tags.

 CLOSURES: Sideseam metal zipper.

CONDITION: A few small flaws. Slight discoloration under the arms and a tiny wear flaw under the right – see close-up. I see a 1" long gray line-type mark on the back of the left sleeve. A former owner had the skirt hemmed up at some point – there is a light crease 8.5" above the skirt bottom.
