This is a stunning black satin evening dress from the 1950's. It has a V neckline which slightly overlaps at the base. There are pleats at the bust which give shape up towards the shoulders and the 3/4 length sleeves are integral to the bodice. There is a shaped stitched in panel above the waist line. The back bodice dips to a V. The skirt is just extraordinary! It is constructed of interwoven panels of fabric which form diamond shapes which get bigger towards the hem. Just beautiful. The dress fastens with a side metal zip.
Vintage items rarely conform to modern day sizings and the UK size we give is only a guide. You are advised to check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit.
Approximately UK size: 10/12 but please check measurements
1950's / CONDITION: Very good - some pin head scratches around point of the V neckline, probably from a modesty brooch. There are fine belt hoops but no original belt.
