Vintage 1940s black and white check knit floor length gown, 40s maxi dress, Size S

$55.25 $65.00

Vintage 1940s black and white check knit floor length gown. Dress has zipper side closure, a sweetheart neckline and point wrist hem detail. Dress is not lined, is cut on the bias so it fits snugly but comfortably and hangs beautifully. Fabric feels like a rayon/polyester blend. Sleek and elegant, yet comfortable.

- There are 2 light spots on the dress, see last photo for an example. I have not laundered the dress so potentially the spots will come out. Priced accordingly.

Length: 53"
Sleeve length: 23" (shoulder to cuff)
