Truly incredible 1940s chocolate brown cold rayon dress with an attached capelet and subtle bishop sleeves. Pulls on over the head with side snap closure and a hook and eye at the collar. The capelet is attached to the back of the neck and closes at the collar with three snaps. The belt has a snap closure with two rows to adjust for comfort. Skirt is slim and fitted to the hip with a full underslip that gives a double-layer impression at the hem of the dress. A truly remarkable piece for the collector!
