Truly adorable early 1940s cold rayon dress with a fantastic abstracted floral print and huge voluminous puffed sleeves. This dress has the best details! There are lovely gathers and small ruffles at the neckline and a keyhole closure at the nape of the neck. Subtle gores in the skirt give is a sultry fit. Zips up one side.

Excellent condition overall with some subtle underarm discoloration that gets lost in the pattern, *very* subtle color-bleed from the threads at the gathered area at the neckline (this is nearly imperceptible) and one invisible repair at the waistline. Presents beautifully.
