At first glance, this is a wonderful 1940s velvet dress with pockets. But upon closer inspection, we believe it is a 1970s handmade piece (by a very talented dressmaker). Still with pockets! Plush deep purple velvet is tailored with pointed seams at the bust and hourglass darting at the waist, dolman cut articulated sleeves and a hook & eye fastener at the cuff for a tight fit. Overall, quite a stunner!• Fits a size S/M, Petite
Fit notes: fits best on a petite frame; slim wiggle fit throughout, no stretch
Sleeve: 28" (cuff to collar)
Waist: 26 1/2"
Barbara is 5’5” / 32"b, 25"w, 34"h / garment is pinned
