A stylish one shoulder dress from the 1940s. This vintage black evening gown features a draped bodice and three tiered skirt. It has stays to keep the bodice in place. Two stays at the front and one in the back on the side without the strap. I am uncertain if there should be a 4th stay on the side where the strap is. It has a long metal zipper down the back.
Age: 1940s / early 1950s
Label: For you by Blanes
Blanes was a London company that made evening and day dresses from the 1940s through to the 1960s.
Fabric: Rayon Chiffon with taffeta lining.
No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please note the following measurements for fit:
Bust: 34" Waist: 25" Hips: 38 " meant to fall loosely Length: 57"
This dress is in good condition. There are about 10 very teensy holes in the chiffon in the bottom tier of the dress and one larger tear to the chiffon which measures about 1 inch this is near the hemline of the dress. The lining is also torn away around the zipper area at the skirt area.
This is a lovely evening gown from a very glamorous period.
