Black Vintage 40s Draped Waist Studded Crepe Dress -
There's nothing like rich, black crepe. It was a common textile choice for dresses made during the 1940's.
A little black crepe dress with dramatic draping and easy fluidity always proves to be an elegant fashion staple. There's a reason why a dress like this was a fixture in nearly every woman's closet a long time ago. A dress like this one just looks right. It's not complicated yet it has details that are striking. It accentuates the body beautifully and it moves comfortably from late afternoon to evening with ease and grace.
This chic dress is short sleeved. It has a nice swag panel at the waist that has tremendous drape. The bodice is jeweled and studded with chrome and rhinestones. (Insta jewelry.) The back has simple yet sexy seaming. This dress zips up the back with a long metal zipper.
Did we mention that it's made of crepe--black '40s crepe? Today's textiles just cannot compete with this stuff, certainly not at this price.
Excellent. One metal stud missing. All other ornamentation in tact. Rhinestones are not shiny, they are grey. Crepe is clean and free of ironing shine.
Crepe trimmed in metal studs and rhinestones.
