Vintage Cocktail Party Wiggle Dress 1959-1960 , Floral Satin Sheath dress in Warm Golden Yellow & Olive


This is such a pretty dress and a classic no matter how you look at it. Beautiful nylon satin fabric scattered with golden yellow and tangerine flowers and olive leaves on a pale olive green ground set the stage. A pristine condition dress for your next showing.

Dating to the late 1950s to 1960, this is a curve enhancing sheath or "wiggle" dress with back zipper and kick pleat that is perfect for a cocktail party or garden wedding. This is an expertly handmade dress with no label, either made by a dressmaker or a home seamstress, as many women were skilled in sewing their own clothing back then. Most of the edges are finished and there is a lot of quality hand sewing in the construction such as hem, around the neckline and zipper. The zipper is a metal tabbed Talon zipper with a hook and thread loop closure at back neck. There are two tuck pleats on either side of the waist front and the bodice is constructed in three pieces, darted with a short capped sleeve style. There is a nice long self fabric tie to circle your waist.

You will make an unforgettable entrance where ever you turn up, in vintage Hollywood style.
