1940s Unusual Fringe Detail Midi Dress

Amazing black silk wool crepe is classic fitted swing from the late forties but with remarkable detailing! The dress itself is cut simply - a long lean skirt with just the slightest of an A-line cut to it. It nips in at the waist and the bodice is simple with a slight V neckline. lightly padded shoulders and short sleeves. A little swag detail sits at one hip. But to this simple dress they have added remarkable silk cord fringe details in little groupings over the entire surface! This gives the piece so much movement and interest! It really take a simple back dress into OMG territory! In excellent condition. Item# D359
