Incredible vintage 1950's handmade cocktail dress in beautiful tangerine & pink floral silk. Pleated, knee-length skirt. Sleeveless, crisscross bodice with a metal zipper up the back. Lined with chiffon. A total stunner.

** Note that the dress was just a tad small for my dressform, thus it is pinned in the back for the photo. There is nothing wrong with the zipper! :)

** Also note that this dress includes two long spaghetti strap ties whose exact purpose is unknown to me. I used one in the photo as a little tie belt, but it is not necessary. I suppose one could also be tied in the hair?

Measured flat. Allow about ½” for a comfortable fit.

36" bust.

25.5" waist.

Free hips.

32.5" long, measured down the center back.

Size: Unmarked. Fits like Medium or Small.

Maker: Unknown. Handmade.
