1940s Amazing Burgundy Crepe Swing Dress

What a glorious 1940s swing dress! These are getting harder and harder to find and to find a jewel like this one is just wonderful to have. The fabric is a deep burgundy moss crepe that drapes wonderfully when on. The bodice is cut to have a slightly looser drape and the that "ruffled" pleat detail that details the bodice and waist is just outstanding. The skirt is lean with just a bit of volume as it nears the hem for that perfect swing cut. It has a wonderful flat pleat detail that runs down the center front so when you dance and twirl it opens up a bit more. Really beautiful and very well done. The design is spectacular. Each shoulder has light padding and the cuffs at each wrist is wide and deep.  A pretty cluster of velvet flowers sits on the shoulder and is the perfect chic finish. This dress is everything you want in a 1940s piece and is a real jaw dropper. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a side metal zipper. The tightly spaced, fabric covered buttons that run down the front are functional. Each cuff closes with the same tightly spaced, fabric covered buttons. It is more os a true wine burgundy in person
