Great vintage 50's vamp dress. The fabric is a heavy rayon/acetate - almost taffeta but more silky. They liked to experiment with fabric compositions back then so your guess is as good as mine :) The dress if very fitted and darted, short cap sleeves. The dress closes down the back with a long 19" metal zipper. The dress measures approx. 38" bust with a large cup allowance, waist is approx. 35/36", and hips are 41", dress is meant to be tight but please allow yourself room to sit. The dress will need to be drycleaned as there is white under the arms from deodarant (I have not cleaned nor worn this dress and it is being sold 'as is' justs needs a little attention and it will be back to a killer dress! I am not sure if all of the deodarant white can be removed?) The back waist darts have been let out and the back kick-pleat needs to re-sewn.
The jacket is truly amazing and worth the price just on its own. It is made of the same fabric. It features a wonderful wide wrap around collar. The sleeves have little metal zippers on them to make them super tight at the cuffs. The jacket closes with two button on the left front - it give the appearance of being double breasted (all 4 buttons are self-fabric covered). There is a tiny little snap about the breast and at the bottom to keep the lines flat.
The jacket is approx. 16" from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, the sleeves are 23" from outer shoulder seam to outer cuff. The bust is approx. 40" and bottom waist 34", the jacket is approx. 17" in length. There is faint white deodarant marks on the underarms of the jacket as well.
Please feel free to contact me if you need anything else! Great dress set with fantastic style and seamstress work, appears to be homemade as I cannot find any labels.
