1940s Lily Print Red Rayon Swing Dress

Stunning, fine silky rayon printed 1940s dress is in museum quality and is a real beauty. The cut and design are all bombshell and pin up girl - it is fitted to skim your curves and has a fantastic huge grey scale lily print on the cheery red back drop. The cut is immaculate - a swingy A-line skirt has a loose fitting bodice that nips in at the waist. I love the way the shoulders are curved and no seams used to create the top of each sleeve. A bit of a slit on each cap sleeve adds a pretty detail. The neckline is gorgeous - little triangles cross and snap into place leaving a little keyhole. It is a tremendous example of the workmanship and extraordinary thought that went into swing dresses during that time period. A wonderful piece to wear now! Excellent condition
