Inky Silk Velvet 1940s Cocktail Dress

Inky Silk Velvet 1940s Cocktail Dress


A beautiful dramatic 1940s silk velvet cocktail dress which hugs the figure an slinks with movement. Unfortunately this dress is quite damaged so check out our condition report, but perhaps this is the chance to buy a bargain piece of 1940s evening wear!


US 10-12 / UK 12-14


Bust: 40” (designed to be blousey)
Waist: 28” unstretched – 30” max
Hips: 42” stretched

Condition: Fair condition with several scattered pinholes throughout. The holes get caught up in the drape of the velvet, and if worn with a black slip would be unnoticeable. Small patch of wear on the right back sleeve and shoulder, as well to the right bodice. Still plenty of life in it!
