40’s Midnight Blue Velvet Gown with Puff Sleeves$168.00
Introducing the ultimate holiday party dress:
This beauty from the 1940s is made from either a rayon velvet or a chiffon velvet of the most mesmerizing midnight blue. It is incredibly soft and reflects the light so beautifully that it almost seems to glow. It features dramatic puff sleeves, a flattering neckline, and elegant ruching at the bust. Metal zipper on left side. Ties in the back. There is no label.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. Later alterations to make the back come up higher have been undone and you can see a slight imprint on the velvet where the seam was and a few pin holes. Otherwise no flaws to note!
Armhole: 10.5 inches
