Rare find — there's only 1 of these in stock.

  • Vintage from the 1960s
  • Materials: velvet, polyester or acetate, acetate or nylon lining, satin

This lovely deep cranberry red long formal vintage dress is a slim sheath style from the 1960s. It has a floral embossed print velvet empire bodice with puffed sleeves and the back closes with a metal zipper and a prim heavy satin bow with very long tails. The skirt portion is possibly polyester or acetate, has a deep back slit and the dress is fully lined. Overall a simple but elegant style for a formal evening dress, prom, a wedding or holiday party.

The condition is excellent and the dress seems unworn save for a small area just below the left shoulder front that had a piece of tape for a price tag at the estate sale I found this at. Unfortunately the tape lifted some of the velvet nap in that area. It is about as noticeable as you can see in the photos; not too terrible. I think a brooch or small pin would disguise it if it seems too obvious for you. Yes, what a dumb thing that was.

Measurements of garment laid flat:
This is a petite or small size so remember to add inches for ease of fit. These are garment measurements, not the body that will go into the dress.


Shoulder - 13.5 inches (34.29 cm)
Bust - 34 inches (86.36 cm)
Empire Waist at bow - 27 inches (68.58 cm)
Natural waist - 33 inches (83.82 cm)
Hip - 36 inches (91.44 cm)
Length from shoulder to hem - 54.50 inches (138.43 cm)
Band around the arm below the puff - 11 inches (27.94 cm)



Remember, holiday parties are always just around the corner.

I got this in the mail the same day that my daughter-in-law came by. We both went into a swoon, but alas, it's too big for the girls right now. That's okay. Children do grow too fast for us.

Even more beautiful in person. Seller was wonderful as we worked together designing my necklace. I was also very pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw the way the necklace was packaged. Thanks again for your attention to detail. I love my necklace!
