Vintage 1940s Black Taffeta Dress, with Square Neckline and Buttons

Beautiful vintage black taffeta dress from the 1940s. Darling pearlized buttons down the front and cute pleating and matching buttons on the sleeves. But what makes this dress extra cool is that underneath the pearlized buttons, are four hidden buttons to help with getting in and out of the dress without sacrificing the charm of the many small buttons on the front. It also comes with a side metal zipper to make things even easier! Medium to large size.

Excellent vintage condition! No holes or tears. There are a few patches of what looks like maybe water marks? Or something, but its very faint and hard to see and takes absolutely nothing away from this dress. I'm just super picky. There is also signs of a small half inch repair under the right armpit.
