30s 40s Women's Dress Vintage Tiered Full Skirt Long Sunset Ombre Extra Small to Small

$ 175.00 Sale Save

A lovely late 30s early 40s vintage formal dress, so young and fresh! Princess seamed bodice with soft sweetheart neckline accented by a self fabric fold across the top of the bust and a soft bow. Short puffed sleeves have two tiers for extra oomph. The waist is fitted with slightly dropped waist seaming that dips in a vee in front. Incredible multi-tiered skirt that is more than a full circle - the color change offers a hint of drama to offset the overall sweetness, and the skirt will move beautifully for dancing.

FABRIC/COLORS: Crisp medium weight taffeta faille in three sunset shades that look great together. The top is butter yellow, the middle goldenrod, and the bottom salmon tinged with apricot. The colors are clear but soft, if that makes sense. Most of the photos show the bodice more tan than it is in real life and show the skirt bottom as rosy pink, which it is not. The most accurate colors on my monitor are shown in the photo on the dark skinned mannequin and the one showing the full circle skirt.

TAGS: No tags

CLOSURES: Sideseam metal zipper

CONDITION: A few faint spots on the back of the bodice and very minor seam stress there - see close-up. Some subtle color variations in the skirt that are not noticeable with the volume and the three tiered color progression.
