Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind when you see this rare 1950s party dress by designer Jo Copeland! Unique and strikingly beautiful. It really is even more beautiful in person, it is so hard to capture it all - the beautiful colors, incredible cut and just the way it feels, that wonderful designer-couture quality your fingers will recognize immediately.

From Patullo-Jo Copeland.
Here is a link to the Vintage Fashion Guild's write up on this designer:

The dress is heavy silk satin in sage green. The bodice is a stunning Indian inspired orange, green and gold brocade with a beautiful shimmer. The marvelous skirt is an entire foot longer at the back than at the front. and has silk drapes that hang all the way down to the finished point. It is trimmed with a matching brocade band. Looks ideal with a crinoline. Truly, one of the most striking, unique and lovely designer pieces I have had recently. I am extremely fond of it!


Bust: 37"
Waist: 28"
Hips: 45"
Length: 47" at front, 59" at lowest point of back

This dress is in very good condition. There are some scuffs to the silk satin back and the edge of one of the ties, but this is minor and it does not mar the overall effect. I find no other issues - no holes, or weakness, no frays, spots, stains or moth chews. It is elegant and rare.
