1940s black rayon velvet swing dress.
Approximately a size Medium.
1940s rayon velvet swing dress. The velvet is liquid like a silk velvet, but is rayon. It feels really luscious! It has elbow length sleeves with a ruched detail at the cuffs. The skirt has a fuller cut. It has a back zipper closure that is covered with a faux button placket and one snap closure. The neckline is a high sweetheart.
In good condition, with no holes or stains. There are a few tiny dings to the nap of the velvet. It's hem has been let out sometime, but you can only see evidence of stitches on the interior of the fabric, and the hem was finished out nicely.
