- AMAZING 1950's Strapless Black Taffeta Cocktail Dress w/ Matching Jacket
The photos simply don't do this one justice... might have to rephoto on a different type of form. A rustling black taffeta 1950's dress. Strapless sweetheart bodice with pleats at the bust. Dress has a gorgeous, full skirt (shown here with a crinoline... not included) with a puckered/smocked type detail. Matching cropped jacket. Side metal zipper. Bodice is boned. Label reads, "Beautime."
Size: 32" bust, 24" waist, free hips. Approximately 41 1/2" from underarm to hem.
Condition: In good condition. There are various pin holes at the bustline and the center bust of the jacket from assorted brooches over the years. The only real issue with this dress is that someone took in and then let back out the right side bodice seam (only the right) leaving visible marks behind (see photo). A pull to the piping at the waist.
