Sparkling Mauve Taffeta 1950's Cocktail Dress
Item v6162 ... Price: $155 SOLD

A cool 1950's cocktail dress in a dark mauve taffeta shot through with glittering green and pink metallic threads. Sweetheart neckline with criss crossed bands at the waist. Dress has a lovely flared skirt (shown here with a crinoline... not included). Rear metal zipper. Label reads, "Milton Lippman Original."

Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)
36" bust, 27" waist, free hips. Approximately 44 1/2" from shoulder to hem.

Condition: In good condition. Not sure if it's the way the dress was made or if it's the result of an alteration, but the waistband at the rear of the dress doesn't come together quite in sync at the sides of the zipper. There is a sloppy hand repair to one inch at the base of the zipper seam. There is a 1/4" slit in the taffeta below the right rear waistband. A pull at the neckline and at the corner of the left underarm. Underarm marking, but it does not stand out.
