This 50s red dress will turn some heads with curves galore from the demure high collar down to the hem!

- Maker, size, and content tags are long gone, but I’m fairly sure the fabric is rayon.
- Would best fit a modern Small, but please double-check the measurements below.
- This beauty features a stunning curved, lined hip yoke that dips low in front and back, higher on the sides. The skirt is gathered only at the low front and back yoke, not at the sides, which is very flattering. Stand up collar, two strips of fabric crisscrossing in front, with gathers below that. Low cut dolman cap sleeves.
- Closes with a 24” plastic Talon zipper that goes to the top of the collar. Thread beltloops, but no belt (the one shown is not included, sorry).
- Condition: very good. A tiny mended hole (see arrow in pic 5), and a tiny unmended hole toward the back of the collar that looks more like a fabric flaw. I found a tiny slit (1/8”) in the folds of the bodice gathers, and three or four tiny (1/8”) slits in the skirt. Not noticeable and don’t affect wearability, but should be watched. Typical of rayon, the fabric color is a little uneven, with some slightly darker areas on the back of one sleeve and near seams. The seams at the shoulders and waist are a little stretched, with the stitching showing, most likely from being stored hung on a hanger. Reinforcing the seams would fix. The zipper seams need to be professionally pressed flat. Nothing to detract or keep this beauty from being gloriously wearable! The dress has been cleaned and carefully stored.

NOTE: Clearance items are being offered as is, no extras, all sales final. These items were stored clean and carefully, but many have been hanging a while and will probably need cleaning to remove creases and to refresh. Please read this description carefully, compare the measurements, and ask all questions before purchase! Honest, I really don't want them to come back – I need the space for new things you’re going to love!

Miss Truvey Mannequin’s measurements are 32½-24½-34½ and she stands about 5’7½”. Please compare the measurements of this dress to the measurements of a similar garment that fits fits you well. Any questions, please ask! I’ll be happy to measure or check anything you need.
