Claudia Young Printed Silk 1950's Wiggle Dress w/ Velvet Trim


Product Description

A stunnning 1950's wiggle dress in a yellow, goldenrod, plum, violet, black and white printed silk.  Fitted, wrapped bodice with pointed bust and black velvet underlayer.  Attached acetate underliner in the bodice has spaghetti straps (could be worn tucked in for a strapless look if you prefer).  All 3 layers of the bust are currently tacked together but could be separated if you want to fold down one of the points, etc...  Dress has a fitted skirt with stiffened, velvet trimmed pouch pockets.  Rear center seam slit for ease of movement.  String belt loops but no belt (black velvet would work or no belt at all).  Side metal zipper.  Label reads, "a Claudia Young Original."

Size: 33 1/2" bust, 24" waist, 35" hips.  Approximately 44" from shoulder to hem.

Condition: This dress presents beautifully and even though it has a bunch of small flaws they really do not stand out, BUT because it's my job to be nitpicky, here we go: Little shine to the points of the velvet.  Someone clipped the dress to a hanger and there is a shiny indent in the velvet from it on one side.  A little wear to the velvet at the very inside edge of the underarms.  2 pin holes on bodice.  Wear to the very corner of the left bust point on the silk.  4 pin holes rear bodice.  Short repair at rear waist seam.  Short repair at zipper seam.  Stress to rear skirt seam.  Scattered pin holes in skirt.  One pea sized hole in skirt (hard to see unless you hold it up to the light... which we did... see if you can find it in the close up fabric photo).  Thought I saw a makeup smudge somewhere on the skirt but I can't find it now.
