- INCREDIBLE Black Taffeta 1950's Cocktail Dress w/ Velvet & Jet Bead Trim
A gorgeous 1950's cocktail dress in rustling black taffeta. Fitted, strapless bodice with a heart shaped bust inset peeking out from underneath. Both portions of the bodice are edged/appliqued with plush black velvet and trimmed with jet beads (not sure if they are real jet... but they have that sort of texture). Dress has a full, pleated skirt (shown here with a crinoline... not included). Rear metal zipper. Bodice is boned. Matching bolero jacket.
Size: 31 1/2" bust, 23 1/2" waist, full hips. Approximately 39 1/2" from underarm to hem.
Condition: In good condition. Couple of pin holes just below the waist (probably from a corsage, etc...). Two pin holes next to the left side seam. Two tiny white dots on the skirt. Bolero has a teeny, tiny hole at the back of the neck.
