A wonderfully elegant and beautiful 1940s ice blue brocade dress with some gorgeous detailing to the neck and fullness to the skirt at the back. The square neck has wonderful little knots to the corners like dress clips, mirrored with the bow to the back that hangs above the pleating like a bustle, with a drop waist. The brocade has a very unique print, that reminds me of tree bark in the winter.

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
