An AMAZING...ONE OF A KIND...museum quality collectible dress handmade from cotton fabric printed with the map of the 1962 World's Fair! If you are a collector of World's Fair pieces...or vintage clothing...WHAT A FIND! Was unoffically appraised by a Vintage Dealer in NYC, and valued at $1,800. if auctioned to an appropriate audience.

I have owned this dress and worn it only a couple of times in the late 80s when I was an XS size. Typical of the early 60s MAD MEN style...with a full circle printed skirt all the way around, with printed bolero.

Dress is near perfect except for a tiny tear on the front left armhole (shown in pic). Due to the print of the fabric you wouldn't notice it because the print is so fabulous. I have tried to capture a close up but my lack of photography skills only produced a blurry photo. You can barely see the spot in the first photo. However, when the dress is shown or worn with the matching bolero, it appears completely flawless.

This is a museum piece for the 1962 World's Fair. As the dress is handmade, we are pretty sure it is a one of a kind...but it could have been part of a costume show dress. We're doing more research as we can for more information.
We are open to offers from serious buyers.

I would say this is definitely an XS dress, as are most vintage dresses of this period.

US Size 0-2
