The embellished skirt of this dress is truly a rare sight! The dress has no label, but was commercially made in the 1950s. The fabric is fine quality black rayon velvet and the bodice is lined in taffeta. The ribbon is taffeta in narrow strips, gathered into ruffles. The egg-shaped decorations on the skirt have lattices of ribbon over tulle, over taffeta, for a slightly 3D effect. The bodice has small cap sleeves, interesting seaming around the bust and a V back neckline. There is a side covered metal zipper.

Condition: Very good. The dress was altered at the center back to make it smaller (I don't think these stitches could be removed without showing). There are a few slightly flattened spots on velvet, but not very flattened or in any obvious places (not the seat, not under the arms)

Size: XS

Bust-33.5"
Waist-24"
Hip-full
Top of shoulder to waist-14.5"
Waist to hem-28"

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.
