This lovely ivory net party dress has a strapless shelf bust with horizontal pleating detail. The bodice is boned for shape and support. There is a full acetate lining. The ankle-length skirt has an additional middle layer of very soft net. Metal KLOZO side zip with top hook&eye. Perfect for a prom, wedding, or any formal or semi-formal event. From the late 1940s or early 1950s.

Labels: none - appears to be homesewn

Fiber/Care: unmarked, hand washable

Condition: The middle layer has not held up well, and is full of holes. Although they are barely visible when the dress is worn (see photos), if it bothers you, the entire layer could easily be removed. The top layer has a few minor holes we could not find to photograph, and the under layer is in great shape. The hook&eye has been reinforced.

*This dress has been carefully hand-washed. It is completely clean, but the lining will need to be steamed or pressed.*

bust: 29" plus room in cups
ribs: 26"
bodice: 9" from center top to waist
waist: 25"
hips: free
skirt length: 37.5" lining, 38.5" net outer layer
hem sweep: 100" lining, net outer layer is much fuller

Notes: Due to its age, item is final sale. International customers, contact us for shipping rates.

This dress is small around the ribcage, although there is room for a moderately full bust. It was a tight fit on our size 0-2 live model. Lola the Mannequin (32.5" bust, 27.5" ribs) could just barely close the zipper, but remember, she doesn't have to breathe and you probably do.
