"Betty Clyne Custom Originals" label.

1950's black silk shantung cocktail dress with super pretty red floral print. This dress has a Dorothy O'Hara style to it I think. The dress is styled with a V neckline and dolman three-quarter length sleeves. Fitted waist, and long lean skirt with a double layer, the top layer is curved at the hem and exposes the under layer. The top layer is decorativley pleated at side seam. The dress has an attached pleated cummerbund style belt, the belt fastens at back-side of dress, and has a huge cascade style drape. The hem of the tie/drape thingy has fringe. The dress is partially lined in rayon faille, and fastens with a side metal zipper. The back of the bodice has a row of small decorative buttons, too.

In very good condition - very little wear shows, it presents beautifully. It has had seam repair to the underarm gusset seams, and on the bodice next to the V neckline there is one spot that is not a stain but a dime size area where the fabric is a little lighter than the rest of the fabric around it, possibly a stain was removed via dry cleaning, and this remained.

Size medium/TALL - I say tall because it is long, it measures 18" shoulder to waist, and 30" waist to hem. So keep that in mind. Here are total measurements: 16 1/2 to possibly 17" shoulder to shoulder edge, up to 38" bust, 27" waist, 38" hips, 18" shoulder to waist, 30" waist to hem. It might fit a snug 28" waist.
