Gasp!! This dress is the stuff that rockabilly dreams are made on! A true rockabilly dress if e’er there was one, this frock is sure to be the talk of the town everywhere you choose to wear it. Perfect when worn with a pair of your highest pumps, a dab of your reddest rouge, and a hairstyle to rival Rita Hayworth’s in her prime! This dress will be marvelous to wear for swing dancing, as part of a vintage-themed wedding party, for next year’s Viva Las Vegas, or for any other especially special vinage-y event. Absolutely gorgeous, and a real jaw dropper!!
This beautiful designer dress was made over 20 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
please note: this dress was photographed over a crinoline for added fullness, but the skirt is quite full on its own!

Best fits: xs
Label: Victor Costa
Bust: 32 - 33 in.
Waist: 23 in.
Length (without strap): 39 ½ in.
Excellent vintage condition with no significant stains, tears, or visible mends. This dress is just nearly immaculate, but it does seem that the red is a bit lighter in some places than in others, although this is not noticeable without really examining the dress. There is one spot of very light yellowing at one of the seams on the skirt, but due to the extreme fullness of the skirt this is not at all eye catching unless you are really looking for it. All in all, this dress is absolutely magnificent! It has been freshly dry cleaned and is ready to wear!
