1940s Silky Rayon Floral Swing Dress

Made from prized early silky rayon this dress is just wonderful. It appears to have never been worn, or worn very little and has been stored properly for all these years so the color is as crisp and vibrant as the day it was made! The design is just stunning. A soft dove grey backdrop has a slight pink undertone to it. Onto this is screened beautiful bouquets of flowers in a stylized painting type of look. The colors that have been used are really beautiful and when combined with that fabric....! The cut is simple and sweet. A high collar has pretty lucite buttons to accent. A scooped bodice seam adds pretty detail. The waist nips in and the skirt is cut on the bias and there is actually quite a bit of fabric in that skirt - 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.
