Item v6241 ... Price: $265 SOLD
An elegant Hattie Carnegie cocktail dress in a dark beige/light taupe silk. Sleeveless dress with scooped neckline. Flared skirt with gathered/pleated rosette topped front. Silk tissue taffeta lining (however the bust is not lined, rather it is simply a double layer of silk). Built in corset at the waist. Rear metal zipper.
Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)
35 1/2" bust, 25" waist, " hips. Approximately 42 1/2" from shoulder to hem (approximately 15" from shoulder to waist).
Condition: In good condition. On the inside of the dress there is evidence of quite a bit of alteration (mostly hand stitching)... looks like it was taken up at the waist and I'm wondering (though I coukd be wrong) if the dress may originally have had wider straps or even sleeves (or perhaps it's simply that the bodice lining was removed?)... doesn't really make a difference in terms of wearability. Some yellow at the underarm. About a dozen orange freckles on the skirt, one on the bodice and two at the base of the left side bodice seam. Two pea sized light orange spots on the hem edge.
