CLEARANCE: Vintage 1940s Sheer Black Dress

Pretty black chiffon dress circa 1940s. Meant originally to be worn over another layer obviously. Covered buttons all up the front and a sweeping skirt with lace inserts. So pretty. Medium size, I'd say. Please see condition below as this has some issues.

Good vintage condition. A clever seamstress could probably upcycle this into something amazing and very wearable. A repair it with some imaginative changes. Most of it is fine, but there are several small holes scattered here and there and the shoulders are both fairly disintegrated though the left worse than the right. It is missing two buttons too. The lace is in excellent condition though, remarkably, and those buttons!!! Both of those are worth what I'm asking for this alone. Priced accordingly, as is, and why its in my Scratch and Dent section.

Measurements when lying flat, Doubled at bust, waist, and hip.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 40"
Waist: 29"
Hips: loose
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 45"

Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat.
