Sorry, this item has sold.

So adorable!

Vintage 1940s black short sleeve crepe dress with pink & blue polka dots print.

Great vintage condition; very minimal wear to fabric from age and use. Two visible repairs on pink dots on left side of dress - one patchwork repair and one small hole repair. Both cleanly done (see photos). No other flaws to note; no other holes, rips, tears, stains, markings, discoloration, open seams or fading.

Awesome design details throughout :)

Bodice has a unique collar with two wing-shaped panels in front that connect at top center of neck with one hook-and-eye closure (see photo). Keyhole opening below hook-and-eye closure. One side of a snap closure underneath collar; unclear to seller what the purpose of snap is.

Shoulder seams have one vertical pleat each, near sleeves (pictured).

Sleeves have cuffed ends with winged detail on outside.

Matching belt has rounded buckle and three reinforced holes. Both belt loops present and intact.

Padded panel attached to right side of skirt with vertical stitching and two clear square Lucite buttons with pearl detail. Panel is open at top and bottom; not a pocket.

Skirt is A-line shaped with vertical pleats at waist in back (see photo).

No lining on inside.

Made by Reich.

Freshly dry-cleaned. Dry cleaning recommended for future care.

Metal side zipper; zipper in great working condition with no issues.
