Drop dead amazing vintage 1950s 50s designer dress.

✧ by Pat Sandler for Highlight -- early American high end designer label
✧ pitch black lightly textured fabric; I believe it is a silk blend weave
✧ fully lined in black silky rayon
✧ fitted bomshell wiggle dress cut
✧ large bow + lace adornemnts up skirt + at left shoulder
✧ avant garde asymmetrical style
✧ expert darting at bust + down sides of bodice
✧ broad pleats at waist for the perfect fit over the hips
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper

This dress is utterly spectacular -- if only it fit me, I would never ever let it go! Classic and avant garde all at once, it will be perfect for flashy cocktail parties, romantic evenings out, and of course (once it comes back around) it will be the perfect New Years’ Eve frock! A true red carpet movie premier dress if ever there was one, this piece is sure to become the most coveted little black dress in your wardrobe. So special, so well made, and so eternally chic!

This beautiful designer dress was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Best fits: s
Label: Pat Sandler for Highlight
Fabric: possibly a silk blend weave
Shoulders: free
Bust: 36 - 37 in.

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is a single teeny tiny pinprick on the bodice, and one ‘shinier’ thread -- this appears to be a natural quirk of the fabric and not a flaw, and besides which, is not noticeable unless looked for. This dress looks just about brand new and as if it has never been worn!
