A perfectly pretty party dress, or just the right vintage late-1950s or early-1960s frock to wear on a special date, out dancing, or just to be flirty and fun. The details:
• whole dress (top and skirt) is constructed of rayon taffeta and an overlayer of chiffon. Both layers have the same print, which creates a charming, watercolor effect when it's worn.
• top has a wide, scoop neckline (very face-flattering), cap sleeves, and shaping darts.
• knee-length skirt is full and the chiffon layer is slight larger and shaped with dozens of tiny pleats at the waistline. This creates a graceful, floating-away look, without adding any bulk (plus, no crinoline is necessary to achieve a full-skirt effect)
• dress closes with a center back zipper & neckline hook & eye

LABEL = dress still has the very tattered remains of its paper retailer's label (unreadable), and a fabric "International Ladies Garment Workers Union" label.

FABRIC & COLOR = fabrics are rayon taffeta (under-layer) and chiffon (over-layer). True colors are gray (background) and shades of yellow (from soft buttercup to tawny goldenrod) and green.

CONDITION = excellent. No stains, holes, rips, weak seams, or odors. The waistline seam has been repaired, but is sturdy and ready to wear.

MEASUREMENTS (please, remember that you'll need room to *wear* this garment, so these can't be the same as *your* measurements):
• Bust = 43 inches around
• Waist = 33 inches around
• Hips = 50 inches around
• Lengths (measured at center back)
Top (neckline to waistline) = 13 inches long (scoop neck style)
Skirt (waistline to bottom hem) = 27 inches long
• Sleeves = 15 inches around at hem
