This early 1960s dress oozes ‘Mad Men’ glamour!

It is very rare to find such an exquisite vintage piece in a size L to XL. It is far too big for my size XS mannequin and although I have tried to pin it to show the cut it really needs a lady with 'va-va-voom' curves to fill it out and to do it justice.

The dress is a very simple and elegant style. It is made from dove-grey sheer synthetic fabric. The torso and skirt are lined but the arms are sheer. On the bodice, there are a series of pleats that extend up from the waistline to create a flattering gently draped ‘cross-over’ effect (it will sit much better on a lady with more shape than my flat chested mannequin!). Under the armpits there is a cleverly designed panel insert that gives more room for a generous bust. There is a side zip and you slip the dress over your head to put it on. The waist is fitted and the matching belt helps create the bombshell hour-glass silhouette. The skirt is finely pleated and flutters beautifully when you walk.

There are no labels so it may have been custom-made. The finish is of a very high professional standard.

I cannot fault the condition of this dress – it is in absolutely excellent condition and I’d say it was only worn once (if at all). No signs of wear or aging – quite immaculate.

This dress is a real gem – guaranteed to impress discerning vintage lovers.

Please check the measurements below to determine if it is suitable for you. The best ways of doing this is to compare the measurements to a similar garment that fits you well. Please choose carefully as refunds are not given for size. All measurements are taken with the garment lying flat across one side only (double for approximate circumference of the chest, waist and hips).

These measurements have been taken from the built in petticoat / lining.

• Chest: 54cm (21.2 inches).
