Original 1940s 40s Vintage Red Halter Neck Evening Dress With Draping And Passementerie Tassels
This bright red evening gown was made in the 1940s from a fine faille fabric. It features a halter neck with incredible draping to the bust, extremely flattering hip draping and two huge knotted passementerie tassels. The hem of this floor length gown is slightly raised and split at the front creating a stunning classic 40s femme fatale silhouette. This gown is an absolute showstopper for any black tie event!
The dress is in good condition, however there is some iron shine throughout and upon close inspection it is possible to see stitch lines from where the dress has been let out. One of the fabric covered buttons at the back of the neck has been replaced with a black button but the dress would benefit from both being replaced more appropriately.
