This late 1940's dress in black moiré-patterned faille fabric is perfectly pretty from the front, with flattering princess seaming, a wide neckline, slit cap sleeves and a full skirt. The real excitement however, is located on the back of the dress: an adorable, big ivory satin bow at the waist, with matching satin flounces to the hem. Hidden behind the bow is a center back metal zipper. The dress is unlined and shown here without a crinoline, although it could be worn with one as well.
Waist: 26" (with darts taken back in will be 24")
