Impossibly chic 1950s sleeveless black cocktail dress with a dramatic tiered lace ruffle skirt, slight drop waist and sexy v-neck back. The perfect timeless occasion dress! Fully lined, back zip.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →bust: 34 inches →waist: 29 inches →hips: 40 inches →length: 44 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small to Medium, dependent on desired fit. Measurements read a bit larger than it fits my size 4 mannequin.
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition. The skirt of this garment is a dark burgundy-wine; I'm not sure if it was designed this way or if it is the result of sun fade over time, but the effect is very pretty. There are a few spots on the skirt that look most like small bleach stains (as pictured). It looks like the hem was altered at some point, leaving the inside lining with an unfinished edge and giving the last layer of ruffles a more translucent look without a backing. This garment presents beautifully and these flaws are only noticeable under close inspection. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Black with dark wine skirt
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label. Body appears to be made of a polished cotton or wool blend with a polyester skirt. Dry clean only.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing!
