A superb example of a Lilli Diamond vintage cocktail dress - and in such good condition!

This beauty features a panel of flames at the front - created from cut-outs in the dress fabric, infilled with black chiffon over an underlay of nude coloured cloth. The back has a deep plunging V shape - very 1950s! Shelf bust with the bodice section ending directly under the bust makes for a good and flattering fit.

Classic sexy hourglass shape with long vertical darts from directly below the bustline to several inches below the waist.

Fastens centre back with a fully working metal zipper and two hooks and eyes.

Main body of dress is solid inky black crepe - fully lined with a firm man made lining. Upper bodice is lined with the nude coloured fabric. The armholes and neckline edges are bound for a neat finish.

Absolutely incredible condition bearing in mind how fragile the chiffon can be, there is no damage to this beauty at all, just a small snag to the nude lining on the inside where it doesnt show and thats it!

Bust 38 inches
Waist 30 inches
Hips 40 inches
Underarm to hem 32 - 2 inch hem turn up
Underarm to waistline 7.5

Label reads - 'Original Lilli Diamond of California'

A real treasure and if I had any hope of squeezing into it, it would go straight to my wardrobe!
