Vintage 1940s Brown Crepe Dress with Velvet Trim and Belt

Toadstool Farm Vintage

This dress has it all! Late 1940s crepe, feels like rayon to me, with pockets and a matching belt, and gorgeous, rich deep brown velvet trim. Look at that collar!  Metal zipper up the back, slim flattering shape. Two decorative buttons at the neckline and a working snap so you can leave that open there if you wish. No label.
Excellent vintage condition. With the exception of one real issue...a large splatter of what looks like bleach marks on the skirt with some minor pilling in the same area. Ugh...this would be so amazing without that. Perhaps it could be dyed? or just ignore it and love it as is. Otherwise the only other thing worth noting is a bit of color fade in the armpits. Dress is priced accordingly to that bleach splash, it would be twice this without it.
