    This item is in good vintage condition. The dress is in great condition for its age, but there are few age marks which are not very noticeable. The bolero does have more extensive marks, which are definitely noticeable. I have included it with the dress to keep them together, but you may decide not to wear it. The marks may fade with dry cleaning. I have priced the item to take these flaws into account.

  • Best fit UK 6/8

    The best fit is a recommendation only. Please refer to other measurements for accurate fitting.

Every era has an iconic style that defines it and this 1940s emerald green crepe evening gown and bolero is definitely up there with the iconic looks of the 1930s and 40s.  The crepe has a beautiful weight to it and the small buttons with the tie back make it extremely elegant. It would make a perfect party dress or alternative wedding dress for someone wishing to wear colour.

This dress has a side opening and a few small buttons at the back.

Model is 5’10” and a size UK 10/12
