This is a beautiful black velvet cocktail dress from the 50's. It has a scooped neckline and short integral sleeves. It fits wiggle style over the waist and hips and there are V shaped bands of black velvet ribbon stitched diagonally under the bust. These bands form a belt at the back waist with a central bow. The back bodice plunges to a deep V to the waist with two popper fastening velvet bands across the V. There is a metal zip in the skirt and the dress is lined in black silk acetate.
