This vintage dress caught my eye straight away and I gravitated toward it like a moth to a flame...
Made with a firey bright red with subtle orange undertones, softly shiny, and slippery to the touch midweight nylon.
Drapes beautifully and feels great on the skin.
The fitted deep v-bodice is made much more interesting with the triangular winged collar and flutter sleeves.
There are attached sash ties that slip through a side seam opening and tie together at the side or in the back.
Metal snaps and hook-loops add even more security to the closure.
Wide sweeping full length skirt.
Completely unlined but opaque.
The fabric has some stretch and slink to it but not as much as a thin nylon nightgown does, for example.
This dress is quite flattering and is certainly going for the glamour of the 1930s-40s but appears handmade.
From the style of the fabric my guess is it was made in the 1970s.
This looks fabulous one, but there is one small dark mark at the back of one shoulder blade and one teeny tiny hole near the bottom of the skirt...otherwise this is flawless, hand washed, and ready to be loved by you while in the boudoir or out on the town...
