This is a beautiful cocktail dress from the 50's. The bodice has integral cap sleeves and a round neckline with central V cutouts back and front. The neckline is lined with the same fabric as the skirt. The dress has a drop waist and there is a thin velvet tie belt at the natural waist line. The drop waist skirt is full and flared and falls from lots of gathers under the waist seam. The skirt is made from silky metallic taffeta in horizontal bands of blue and taupe and black. The dress has 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: 12/14 labelled 44 but please check measurements
1950's / CONDITION: Very good - the lining fabric at the centre of the cut out V's at the neckline is a little frayed but is unseen when worn.
