1940s Silk Crepe Padded Roses Floral Swing Dress

This beautiful and all original swing dress is screened with a bright and vivid floral design on the skirt and has a padded floral detail on one shoulder. The color is amazingly true and bright and is screened on a light silk crepe base. The fabric is stunning -  it is a high quality silk crepe that has a slight stretch so is easy and comfortable when on. The dress itself has lots of fine seaming and detailing and is extremely eye catching. The front has a gathered and scooped neckline with side shoulders that are gathered as well. One shoulder has a stunning cut out and padded floral bouquet attached that perfectly picks up the design of the skirt. The skirt is cut fairly lean with a soft, flattering Aline and is gathered up at the front into that angular line of the dropped waistline. The contrast between the black and the color of the skirt and that shoulder derail is really stunning. Extremely pretty and bright and a real find. Excellent condition
