50s Mr. T by FRANK TISCH--Grecian-Style Cocktail Dress--Silk Jersey--Draped--Bubble Hem--Size 4

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Silk jersey cocktail dress from the 50s. Very elegant. Superb quality. Gathers around the waist. Blouson top. High neck. Teeshirt style top. Small, permanent bow at waist. Beautifully draped; the bodice is gathered on the left side above the bow. Sort of a twisted effect, which creates a lot of drape, and makes me think of a Grecian gown. Welted waist. Bubble hem. Fully lined in silk taffeta. Metal back zipper with hook and eye fasting at waist. Beautifully made and beautiful to wear. Has been dry-cleaned.

*Has three pin holes at top of left shoulder. Not really noticeable unless you're looking, and especially if you've got shoulder length hair. The dress has been worn and is not the crispiest thing ever! If you're looking for like-new, this isn't, but still has a lot of life in it. I've reduced the price a bit.

Please note that the sunlight is making the lighter circle appear in the pics. It has no fading!*

Has been dry-cleaned.
