1940s Moss Crepe Halter Gown

Simple and chic this forties moss crepe gown is a superb example that even then simplicity could be striking. The gown is stretch crepe and cut on the bias so really work with your body once it is on. The top is simple with two straps and a neckline cut straight across. Dramatic jewel detail add a luxe detail! The bodice is cut almost flapper like with little definition through the waist and then it has two notched tiers around the upper hip. The skirt falls in one lean long swoosh and has a matching notch in the front that picks up the notch on the tiers! A wonderful, statement piece in excellent condition!

Bust: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: 59" from shoulder to bottom hem

The moss crepe has some stretch and is cut on the bias so you can add a bit to the measurements above Unlined and closes at the side with a metal zipper and three snaps hidden under the top hems edging. Amazing rhinestone set jeweled detail at the front. Some of the threading has started to lighten along some of the seams but they still seem strong and wearable!
