Vintage 1940s Pink Strapless Party Dress and Shawl

A gorgeous late 1940s party dress!  Lightweight, slightly sheer pink cotton with a sharkskin iridescence.  Strapless, sheared bodice has boning to give it shape.  Full, A-line skirt.  Back metal zipper.  The matching shawl has amazing pleated pockets on the ends.  It looks stunning with or without a crinoline.

NOTE: this lovely dress will require your favorite vintage slip.  It was also photographed with a crinoline (first photo), not included.
