♛The Details

Divine ca. early 1950s dress of black taffeta, believed to be silk, bias-cut through the skirt. Classic paperdoll silhouette with a nipped waistline and very full, sweeping skirt. I have lightened some photos so you can see the amazing details: it's completely bedecked, front and back, with scrolling vines and flowers made out of passementerie braid, crochet lace appliques, and silver metal studs enclosing rhinestones. A showstopper! Side metal zipper. Only has its old size tag attached, but I am positive this intricately crafted dress is a designer piece.

Overseas shipping is by Global Priority Mail with Tracking.

Shown here over our crinoline, not included in sale but offered separately in our store if desired.

♛The Measurements

About a modern size M
Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) best for 38"
Waist 28"/tight 29"
Hips Full
Bodice length, shoulder to waist seam 16 1/4"
Skirt length 30"

♛The Condition

Very good vintage shape and presents beautifully. It's not perfect, but has some of the typical issues that these old silk taffetas often have. The bodice fabric has 4 tiny nicks/scuffs (all but 1 are in the back), and the corners of the underarm seams each have a tiny, well-concealed professional mend; this area is always prone to damage, and I must say, unless you know to look, the mends look like part of the seaming. If you hold the skirt up and go over the fabric against a window's light, you'll find a few micro-holes, as is also very typical. This dress is still beautiful and full of amazing details, and with care is ready to wow a new generation.
