Vintage 1940s Rayon Crepe Little Black Dress

Beautiful classic vintage black crepe dress from the early 1940s. Simple and elegant sheath style with a slightly fuller skirt. Has an interesting little bit of stitching at the left hip in front down the skirt to give it some shape and interest ending in a small kick pleat at the bottom hem with a matching really small kick pleat in back. 3/4 sleeves. Has a side metal zipper, and a short metal zipper at the back of the neck as well. Medium to large size, I'd say.

Great vintage condition. There is a bit of color fade at the shoulders and a quarter sized faded spot on one arm, and a couple of very small pinhead sized holes. The tab of the zipper in back is missing, but the zipper still works just fine you just have to grab it at the little jump rings instead. All of that is very minor and not really noticeable. The worst bit is a threadbare area near the left armpit. I have shown a photo. It has been repaired and patched prior to coming into my possession, and quite well. Dress is priced accordingly.

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.
