- Beautiful Black 1950's Cocktail Dress w/ Velvet & Ivory Lace Trim
A beautiful 1950's cocktail dress in black taffeta (has a slightly different texture than a traditional taffeta). Figure flattering long fit and flare lines. Black velvet bust topped in ivory lace. Black velvet straps. Side metal zipper. Interior waistband with hook and eye closure. Lined. Feels like a nicely made piece but there are no labels. This dress was shown with a thin crinoline (it is not included and it is hanging out in the photos... my apologies!).
Size: 31" bust (taken in), 23 1/2" waist, free hips. Approximately 40 1/2" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: In good condition. Some tiny, faint orange dots on the lace. A few scattered dust spots on the skirt (will probably sponge out). Tiny hole on the edge of the left shoulder strap and another on the edge of the bow.
