Lovely black striped acetate taffeta 1950s "Dolman Dress Montreal" label dress with unique and sultry scalloped bordered illusion lace panels around neckline and across full skirt. Side metal zipper. Comes with original matching belt. Looks fantastic worn with a crinoline (perhaps one that is the same pale lavender colour of the illusion linings)?

Approximate Measurements:
Bust: to 38 when measured across armpit to armpit x 2 (laid flat) but due to darting, may have more room?
Waist: 32 to 33 (belt at largest hole is 33")
Hips: Full
Length: 43 (from shoulder to waist is 16)

Condition: On the whole the dress is in very good condition. On close inspection, I notice some of the black lace separating along margins. A couple of snag holes on back bodice (one higher back, one towards back waist seam); a few other microsnags and scuff; a hard-to notice tea coloured stain on left neckline illusion detail lining. All in all, dress is in lovely and wearable condition, but it is being sold AS IS. Price has also been lowered slightly, as I have not had it dry cleaned (I'm worried the lace may become even more damaged). No refunds, exchanges, or instore credit, so please ask all questions and request extra photos before purchase. Thank you!
