This gorgeous creation is pure 1950s splendor, in velvet and taffeta. The velvet bodice is rather low cut, with darts from the center seam below the little front slit. The circle skirt is very crisp black taffeta with black flocking in a flowery lace-like pattern. The hem is scalloped. There is a side covered metal zipper and a narrow velvet belt. The dress was commercially made but has no label. It is not lined.

Condition: Very good. The belt shows wear, but is still usable. The velvet's nap is flattened in small areas on the sides of the neckline and under the arms (shown in the last two photos). Nothing much is wrong, and much is wonderful!

Size: About a US size 8, or medium, by my estimate

Top of shoulder to waist-15.75"
Waist to hem-28.5"
Shoulder to shoulder-16.5"
Circumference at hem-200"

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
