    Beautiful Bright Daffodil Yellow Lace Vintage 1940s Fitted Formal Dress Film Noir Old Hollywood
    Beautiful bright daffodil yellow lace vintage 1940s fitted formal dress film noir old hollywood rockabilly pinup bridesmaid wedding although this dress has issues (see condition), it is still beautiful and looks amazing on. It is gorgeous bright yellow (brighter than the pictures show) and the lace and sweetheart neckline are so romantic. Lined in a soft blend with lace exterior, this dress is bold yellow with puffed lace sleeves, gathered waist calf length pencil skirt and darted top for fit. L a b e l i n g a g e : true 1940s vintage, with 'repairs' done in later era. (see condition) s i z e : this dress best fits a medium. It measures 38' bust, 28' waist, 38' hips, and 27 1/2' from the waist to hem (43 1/2' overall length from shoulder seam to hem). M a t e r i a l : blend (feels like a silk blend) and lace c l o s u r e d e t a i l s : back zipper and hook & eye closure. C o n d i t i o n : overall good. The issue this dress has is that in some later era (most likely 60s or 70s) someone tried to alter it and did a very poor job. It looks like it was once a larger size and someone tried to alter the size dramatically without deconstructing the dress. The misaligned hook & eye and large stitching around the replacement zipper can be seen in the 5th photo as examples of the awful amateur sewing job. The dress needs to be taken to a proper seamstress and the upper seams that were badly altered and the poorly stitched zipper need to be pulled and redone and the dress will be like new again. One of the replacement seams along the waist line is busted, but it hardly matters as that is one seam that must be pulled and redone for the dress to fit as it should again. These alterations throw off accurate dating of the dress, but based on material, original seam work, and style, it does date from the 40s. This dress is priced accordingly.
