WONDERFUL Copper Taffeta 1950's Cocktail Dress w/ Gathered & Draped Skirt


Product Description

A really wonderful 1950's cocktail dress in shimmering copper taffeta. Sleeveless bodice with square neckline. Dress has a fabulous full skirt with gathered and draped panels. There is an attached sculptural mesh underlayer inside the top half of the skirt (not like a hip pannier, but a stiff nylon mesh with a curved, bound hem) that gives the gathers the proper shape when worn. We have also shown it here with a crinoline... not included). Side metal zipper.

Size: 35" bust, 27" waist, free hips. Approximately 43" from shoulder to hem (has been hemmed about 4").

Condition: In good condition. Some underarm marking... mostly at the right side (fortunately the color and sheen of the taffeta masks it a bit). Some seam stress. Perspiration mark above the waistline. There are two watery type stains in the gathers on the front skirt. A pin hole on the rear bodice. A small discoloration inside the strap. All in all the dress still presents beautilly.
