Midnight blue silk satin cocktail dress was originally sold at Lipman's here in Portland, Oregon in the late 1950s or early 1960s. Bodice of lace overlay simply oozes sparkle with it's squiggles of sequins. Pencil skirt has a pleated drape that falls over the front of the skirt and becomes part of the dress in the back. Center back metal zipper is topped with a metal hook and eye. Ceil Chapman white label.

I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Meaghan's measurements are 33-25-38 and she stands at 5'8" tall. This dress can accommodate a much larger bust.
-Bust: 40"
-Waist: 26"
-Hip: 38" MAXIMUM
-Length shoulder to waist: 16"
-Length waist to hem: 25" +2.5" hem

Very Good condition, depending on your personal standards. I'd rate it a 7 out of 10. Flaws are as follows:
-Some loose threads here and there. Particularly inside the garment, around the arm hole facings and such.
-Some loose portions of sequins throughout. Just an inch or two here and there that are not tacked all the way down.
-Sequins are slightly faded at the shoulder and under the arm. See detail photo.
-Lipstick mark on INSIDE of the waist of this dress. Seen in last photo.
