- Sam Friedlander Black Crepe, Cream Satin & Black Velvet Cocktail Dress
A chic 1960's cocktail dress in a heavy black crepe. Sweetheart bodice with spaghetti straps. Elegant drape attaches at the shoulders and hangs down the rear neckline. Black velvet trimmed cream satin waistband. Dress has a fitted skirt. "Sam Friedlander," label is hanging on by a thread (we do not restitch any labels). Additional label for "J.W. Robinson California." Rear nylon zipper. Lined in silk.
Size: 33" bust, 25" waist, 35" hips. Approximately 39 1/2" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: In good condition. Why someone would do it is beyond me, but it smells like this dress has been washed... crepe feels slightly stiffer than I think it should as a result. Also, there is a faint purpley line on the edge of the cream satin (I assume this would have happened when the velvet was wet). There is a separation to one of the lining seams (does not affect wear). Straps have been crudely hand altered at the rear (not really an issue) and one strap needs to be reattached to the drape.
