Excellently made by Suzy Perette for Lord and Taylor, Fifth Avenue in the 1950's.

Lush, soft black velvet. Fitted bodice with a high, rounded and piped neckline. Short sleeves. A rather full, bubble like skirt with hip pleats and rayon piping along the hem. A sweet little kitten bow at the center of the waist. Back metal zipper and eye and hook closure.

Good vintage condition. The waist bow was pinned down for photos, There is a one inch area at the back of the dress, toward the shoulder that has worn the velvet a bit as well as another small spot next to it and a couple of scattered pinhead sized spots on the other shoulder which go unnoticed while worn. The dress could use a trip to a reputable cleaner to get it looking it's freshest. The dress is priced accordingly.

Fits best on a modern size small.

Measurements taken while dress laid flat (please double bust, waist, and hips)
Bust 18 inches
Waist 13 inches
Hips Full
Length 40 inches
