Vintage style 1940s swing dress. It was made with an original vintage pattern using vintage rayon/silk crepe fabric. The fabric has a gorgeous thick silky lay and crepe texture, they just dont make fabric like this anymore. It’s a powdery pink with bunches of blue, purple and pink colored flowers. 10 vegetable ivory style buttons sit between two sets of curve hugging pleats. Its light, silky and feminine. Complete with a bow. Its perfect for pin curls and victory rolls, cream rouge and silk stockings.
