x ARCHIVED Devastating Black Illusion Lace Bodice Evening Gown circa 1940s
Smashing 1940s gown of black crepe rayon with a sheer nude bodice layered in black cubist rose design lace. Side zip, 2 layers of nude nylon, back of neck buttons. Beaded waistline. Velvet rhinestone flower applique added to disguise some discoloration, a few minor spots remain. One small hole back of left shoulder on top layer (I may add a bit of black lace to secure, but not shattering or fragile). Amazingly well constructed. No label.
34" bust, 26" waist, 42" hips, 17" bodice, 57" long
