A swing era LBD for cocktails or dancing, this 1940s dress in black rayon crepe dress has a simple shape accented with horizontal rows of black sequins and trapunto. The high, round neckline, cap sleeves and shorter hemline are typical of dresses from the war years. It lightweight crepe fabric is unlined, and just a tiny bit sheer. The dress closes with a metal zipper in the side seam and the back of the neck opens with small covered buttons. Based on the underarm-to-waist measurement, the dress may be petite (or short-waisted), and should therefore fit best on a shorter lady. It is in excellent condition, with a few loose stitches in the back waist seam (see photo), but no other issues. See our lightened close-up photo of the bodice for the best view of the sequins and trapunto detailing.
