DEADSTOCK Vintage 1940’s – 1950’s Red Crepe Party Dress with Rosette Waist by Bolero Belding Corticelli
Beautiful red crepe 1940’s to 1950’s dress – deadstock (never worn!).
Bolero by Belding Corticelli dress. A “high textured crepe”. Lipstick red. Scoop neck. Empire bust with large matching rosette at waist. Fitted wiggle dress. Fully lined for comfort. Low scoop back. Sleeveless. Tags still attached. Such a beautiful evening dress! Zips up the back.
A little bit of history: Edith M. Ellis supported conscientious objectors during World War I and founded the No Conscription Fellowship. How cool is that?

Measurements are taken while laying flat, across and doubled. All items are handwashed prior to being shipped. We do have cats and dogs in our household and try to keep them separated from any clothing items, however be aware that there may be pet dander present and you may need to wash items again if you have issues with allergies. All flaws are mentioned in the listing, as we see them. If a flaw slips past, we apologize and will happily exchange or refund upon return of the item. Remember that small imperfections and signs of wear or age almost always are to be expected with pre-owned items, even if they wouldn’t have any specific flaws. But this is what gives them all the individuality and history!
