 A vintage velvet dress from the early 1940s. The dress has smocking on the shoulders and near the waist, and also has a decorative bow at the front neckline. The dress has padding in the shoulders and belt loops (but is missing the original belt). The velvet fabric is dark purple, and it feels like silk velvet.

Size: l to xl

Bust: 44"

Waist: 39" (there are no fasteners, so this will need to fit over bust and shoulders); the waist will also work for smaller if dress is worn with a belt

Hip: 48"

Length: 46"

Bodice length: 17.5"

Shoulder (from seam to seam): 16.5-17"

Condition: Very good to good. Scattered marks on velvet; a few are noticeable, most notably on the front skirt, but dress still presents well. Also, while I have steamed and aired out this garment, I have not had it professionally cleaned because I don't have a professional cleaner I trust.
