This is a 1940s evening dress that is made of floral printed pink silk.  This 1940s evening dress comes with a matching shawl.  It has open shoulders with cap sleeves, a wide V neckline and back.  The waist is defined by a matching faux belt and the skirt falls in drapes to an ankle length. It is unlined and does up at the side with a fine tooth pink painted metal Talon brand zipper.  The fabric is accented with clusters of pink sequins.  The shawl is tied at its ends and has no hooks or other closures, so it simply hangs.
