Vintage 1940s Cocoa Crepe Swing Dress

Raleigh Vintage

A beautiful 1940s swing dress!  Lightweight brown crepe.  The neckline and sleeves are trimmed with scallops.  The drawstring tie at the neckline is long enough to be creative with wrapping around the bodice or the neck.  Pleating and ruching at the waist created a slim fit that flares into a bias cut swing skirt.  Back waist tie and side metal zipper.
