This truly exquisite 1940s embroidered dress is a breathtaking reminder that the past provides a classic. This stunning heavy chiffon number is a hand finished piece, we love all the beautiful details, from the ruffles on the bust line to the dip in the waist seam. Its just breath taking and will be sure to make you feel like cinderella at the ball. We've toughened it up by pairing it with boots and a couple of gold pendants for a grungy Courtney Love vibe. There are a few small signs of wear, a couple of rust stains which we haven't actually attempted to try to get out for fear of causing damage to it. This has been considered in the price and still really doesn't make the dress any less beautiful. Its a one off number and a piece to be cherished really. A fresh look and feel, we love the flattering shade of cream and the sweet feminien flow of the fabric. Our model is 5,8 and a size 8 and here wearing measurements as follows: Bust 29" Waist 26.5" shoulder to hem: 55" Shoulder strap to bust 4.5".
