NEW YORK CREATION Rayon Embroidered Bodice Dress 40s. NOTE on color of materials: Please note that some pictures will be taken under daylight or flash to show detail and will change, magnify or exaggerate color differences on the fabric.

They are much more even in normal light unless otherwise noted. Black and darker colors will appear faded/toned due to light reflecting on the surface of the fabric. Usually pictures showing tags will be the correct color.


V neck bodice has an applied coral crepe wide band and is embroidered with pink, white, and, turquoise seed beads, Silver rocaille beads, Metallic gold braid and fancy nailhead studs, Turqoise metal dome nailheads, Red and turqoise cabs along collar. Four gored skirt has some shirring along seam where it attaches to dropped waist at front. Dress zips up the side and is unlined. Measurements: All measurements given for wovens are exact so allow at least 5/8 for ease Size: no size approx. Shoulder to Shoulder: 17" (shoulder seam to shoulder seam) Bust: 40/42 (due to fabric and construction there is a bit of give/ease) Waist: 30/32 (again because of the cut of the dropped waist and fabric/pattern construction this fits like a late 30s-early 40s bias dress, sort of) Hips: 48 (nice and roomy) Dress Length: 59 (shoulder seam to hem) Sleeve Length: 9" (shoulder seam to hem of cuff) Labeled: See Photo (New York Creation designs started in 1941, we believe this to be from the first half of the 1940s).

Good/As-Is The good news: the beading applied crepe band on bodice is unharmed, the beads, cording and nailheads are all there, the crepe oveall is in sturdy supple shape with no fading. The bad news: what I thought were pink/white beads are actually red beads that lost there color along the way.

Some strands of them have bits that are still bright coral/red with others fading to a pale pink and the rest are white, there is some damage to one of the armscyes underneath the arm with another hole in between some of the beading, unfortunately though the rayon is in fine shape and is not faded there is damage/holes (moth or bugs) on the skirt panels, because the dress is so long it can be shortened and the excess used to patch the holes.
