- Black Taffeta 1950's Ball Gown w/ Pink & Red Trim & Train
A gorgeous, stylish 1950's ball gown in black taffeta. Strapless bodice with pink and red taffeta pleated bust inset (the pink portion doesn't show well in the photos but it is there!). Fabulous ball gown skirt with draping in the front and pink/red taffeta inset/bustle at the rear. Rear metal zipper. Bodice is boned for support.
Size: 35" bust, 30" waist, 37-38" hips. Approximately 52" from underarm to hem.
Condition: In good, wearable condition. First, I have to say that this dress presents very well despite all the nitpicky things I'm about to say... Small repair above the rear waist. A little stress around the zipper seam at waist. A little iron shine. Some slight yellow to the pink taffeta at the underarms. An orange dot on the pin taffeta at the right underarm. Some scattered pin type holes in various places. A notch shaped tear in the hem at the rear. Although they are mostly lost in the volume, there are some faint spots and smudges on the pink taffeta at the rear of gown. A few dusty type surface spots... could use a profesional clean/press.
