- Extraordinary Plum Taffeta & Black Velvet Bombshell 1950's Sarong Cocktail Dress
A knockout 1950s vintage cocktail dress in plum taffeta with black houndstooth type flocking. Fitted bodice is gathered in the front and surplice style in the back (unless I have it backwards! Based on proportion I assumed the zipper was on the wrong side... but I could be wrong... stunning either way!). FABULOUS fitted sarong style skirt with asymmetrical winged hip. Side metal zipper. This is an amazing dress but definitely home made... the bodice gathers are a little crudely proportioned when you look at it and as previously stated, I think the zipper is on the wrong side (though it doesn't really make a difference).
Size: 34 1/2" bust, 24 1/2" waist, 35 1/2" hips. Approximately 48" from the shoulder to the longest point of the sarong. Long waisted at about 17 1/2" from shoulder to waist.
Condition: In good condition. A tiny bit of underarm marking at the right underarm but I doubt you'll ever see it. A few loose stitches above the zipper placket (nothing structural).
