Description

A unique two piece from the 1950s that consists of a cocktail dress and a long skirt. Wear the two together and you have a bombshell evening gown.

Made from ice blue slipper satin, the dress and the visible portion of the skirt are heavily embellished with AB sequins and bugle beads.

The dress fastens down the back with a metal zipper and the under skirt has a single hook to fasten at the waist.

There is no label, but this would have been professionally made.

Both parts are in very good condition.

The bodice is lined in ivory rayon, and there is some yellowing at the edges and a couple of rust spots.

There are a few light spots on the dress. The most obvious mark is a line which I photographed.

There were loose and missing beads and sequins. I have fixed most of this. There are still a few beads missing, but you will have to search them out.

A couple of minor pulls.

Some yellowing to the top part of the skirt, this is covered when worn.

Nothing that detracts, the dress presents beautifully and is strong and wearable.

One armpit has a little bit of staining, not obvious

Skirt
13.5 inches across the waist
19.5 inches across the hips
39 inches waist to hem

Dress
17 inches pit to pit (will easily fit a 37 bust)
14 inches across the waist
19.5 inches across the hips
39 inches shoulder to hem
