1940s Silk Dress with Huge Floral Print

Beautiful, original swing silk printed dress screened with a bright and vivid† huge floral design screened onto both sides of the dress. The color is amazingly true and bright - a really stunning piece! It is very easy to wear - it just slips on over the head and falls into place. The fabric is stunning - a high quality silk† with lots of fine seaming and flat pleat detailing. The front has a gently scooped neckline and the skirt is cut fairly lean with a soft, flattering Aline. The silk is very high grade and the contrast with the pop of color is really stunning. It has a couple of small flaws so please read the full description below. Extremely pretty and bright. Item# D416
