Vintage 1940s Color Block Swag Dress

This striking 1940s rayon dress features color blocked bands of tan and green to bring life to the muted brown background.  Patch pockets accent the bodice and the skirt.  A swag falls from the color band across the hip.  Side and back-neck metal zippers.  Unlined.  Stunning!



Label:  none

Best fits:  XS/S (see measurements)

Circa:  1940s

Fabric:  Rayon

Condition:  Overall good.  The dress presents beautifully, but does have a few issues.  A previous owner used colored fabric tape to repair two small holes on the shoulder (see photo).  There is a pinhole in the sleeve (see photo).  There are a few very faint spots on the skirt (I wasn't able to get a good photo of these, but message me if you'd like to see the photos I did get.).  There is a slight, overall color variation/fade (see photos).   Despite all of these issues, the dress is very wearable and still has lots of life ahead of it.  Priced accordingly; sold AS IS.
