1940s Amazing Green Print Silk Swing Dress

Made from an amazing printed silk that is cut on the bias so has a touch of stretch to it, this dress is just wonderful. It appears to have been stored properly for all these years as the color is as crisp and vibrant as the day it was made! The design is just stunning. The base is a deep olive green and then onto this is screened beautiful little teal flowers in a stylized painting type of look. Interspersed with this is little squares of white and a cherry red. The colors that have been used are really beautiful and when combined with that fabric it is a beauty! I love how the skirt has been screened to work with the pleats so when you dance you get an unexpected flash of print! The cut is simple and sweet with a V neck and gathers along each shoulder. The waist is cut loose and easy and the skirt is cut has quite a bit of fabric that opens out from the more fitted hip area. It moves wonderfully! It has a slight nod to the twenties in that its not meant to fit tightly- it just skims the body and drapes. Wonderful condition.

Unlined and closes with a side metal zipper. The tiniest of fading near the seam under the arm but it does nto detract and present perfectly when on.
