Volup 1940s Rayon Crepe Dress Fuschia Pink Beaded Embroidered Sz 12 #1436AB

Volup 1940s Rayon Crepe Dress Fuschia Pink Beaded Embroidered Sz 12 #1436AB. A vibrant 1940s fuschia pink rayon crepe formal dress or gown with beautiful green metallic embroidery and milkglass and reflective metallic beading on the bodice.


The unlined dress features small shoulder pads, short sleeves with small split, a defined waist seam, and a long straight skirt with stiched down pleats on either side of the front waist for fit, a long front center slit, and a plain back. The bodice is loose, with no collar, a beaded and embroidered neckline and front keyhole opening, and it has gathers on either side of the waist seam in front, and two pleats on either side of the back at the waist seam for fit. The beading is beautiful, with milkglass flowers that have glass beads with metallic centers in the center of the flowers so that they reflect the color of the dress fuschia centers!
These glass and metallic beads are also found on some "buds". Metallic green thread winds vines and leaves between the flowers, and outlines most of the elements of the design. The dress has a self belt with square fabric covered buckle. The gown goes on over the head with a left side silver metal zipper and a hook and thread loop at the top of the front keyhole opening. The dress appears to be professionally designed and made, but any designers label that may have been in the dress has been lost over time. The gown is midi lenth on my 6 foot model, but would be to the floor on someone of average height. The approximate measurements of the dress are as follows. Bust (pit to pit) 42. Shoulder to shoulder across the back 14 3/4. Belt end to end 36.

These measurements are approximately equivalent to a modern US size 12, an unusual volup size for today's modern woman. There is some give to the fabric but very little at the waist seam which is a limiting feature for sizing. There is no fabric label, but I believe the fabric is rayon crepe. The dress is in exceptional condition for age with no stains, discoloration, fading or damage to the dress that I could find.
The original belt shows little to no sign of wear, suggesting that this gown may be deadstock from the 1940s. I see no issues in the embroidery and beading. There are no underarm issues and I could find very few flaws. There is no fading or discoloration often seen on rayon crepe of this era. However, this is a vintage garment that is at least 75 years old and so there may be some minor signs of age related wear such as the odd tiny pick (but I did not see any) or a tiny loose thread (again I did not see any).

The gown is amazingly well preserved. Ready for any 1940s themed event, and a stunning example of the 1940s era for the collector. Beautifully matched with a period platter hat and purse as shown (not included) and perhaps some long gloves (not included). Hat, jewelry and accessories not included. This is NOT a reproduction, this is a stunning, fuschia pink, original 1940s rayon crepe formal dress or gown, with beautiful metallic embroidery and beading on the front bodice and a long center front killer slit.

Color can vary between individual monitors. Although we are experienced dealers in antique and vintage clothing and accessories, we are not experts on everything.

We have attempted to describe the item to the best of our abilities, and to point out any flaws. However, we may not have highlighted something that is important to you in the description, so please review the photos carefully as they form part of the description and they show the true condition of the item. We strive for totally satisfied customers who are happy to leave good feedback, and we are willing to go the extra mile to make you a satisfied customer! Important information on vintage sizing. The sizing of vintage clothing can be very different from modern sizes. An item of clothing manufactured 100 years ago was for body shapes different from our own. Although we quote to the nearest. Equivalent US size, we recommend that you review all the detailed measurements provided closely. Please be aware that vintage clothing is neither new nor perfect. In many cases, vintage clothing has been worn and is no longer new, and that is why it is such a good bargain. Excellent antique or vintage condition rarely means new - do not expect new or perfect as there will almost always be some signs of wear, especially with older items.
Sometimes we sell newer vintage items that are new old stock (NOS) so they have never been worn and can be in such excellent condition that there are no signs of wear. But some of the garments we sell are 75 years old or more, and even if they were never worn, the fabric may show signs of wear just from being stored all those years. Please assume that older vintage and antique items may have a little dust and/or a few age spots, unless we have specifically stated that we have recently laundered the item. Nevertheless, vintage is a great way to dress extravagantly without having an extravagant budget. You can often find extraordinary examples of antique, vintage or designer items that are wearable textile art and will make you look like a million bucks!
