Vintage 1940s Open Sleeve Dress

Such a unique and beautiful dress.  The silhouette is classic '40s, but this dress is made from plum kimono fabric.  There a stenciled linear floral print.  Bright red silk lining.  The highlight are the open sleeves that drape from the arms with peeks of the red lining.  Buttons at the front.
