Beautiful pale pink beaded party frock, about a modern US S, circa early 1960s vintage.
V- neck with incredibly detailed beading expanding out about 2- 1/2" from the edge.
"The Fifth Addition" label sold through Rizik Bros. of Washington, DC, "Scovill" zipper pull with plastic teeth, no other labels.
The fabric has a Shantung sheen and texture- lighter to moderate weight- likely a silk and wool blend.
Panel construction, each panel is backed in a very lightweight (likely rayon) weave prior to construction, allowing the seven panels to hold the fit and flare shape of the dress.
Front V- detail from upper underarms, the body is seamed to the hem.
Very streamlined waist, A- lined to the hem, falls to mid knees.
Beaded detailing is flawless, I can not spot anything out of place.
Very slight tan discoloration to each armpit area, this very minor but worth noting- not hard or stiff, no odors, etc. This does not detract in any way and is barely noticable.
Overall condition is excellent, no other staining, holes or other damage.
Easily worn 3- 4 seasons, based on climate.
A really lovely mid century dress- sure to be a favorite!
