♛The Details

Show-stopping 1950s dress of sheer emerald green silk organdy layered over matching tulle and bronze taffeta. Truly sublime dress ensemble includes its matching sheer jacket topper. Strapless, boned, pintucked bodice, a nipped waist, and super full triple-layered circle skirt. The color is iridescent, like a peacock's feather.

Closes with side metal zipper.

Labels are Frank R. Jelleff of Washington, D.C. and Mollie Stone of New York.

Shown here over our crinoline, not included in sale but offered separately in our store if desired.

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.

♛The Measurements

About a modern size S
Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) 34" (strapless bodices should fit very snugly)
Waist 26"
Hips Full
Bodice length, highest point of strapless neckline to waist seam 10 1/2"
Skirt length 27"

♛The Condition

Very good vintage shape with no overt or issues noted. Fabric is clean and gleaming. Under close inspection I found 2-3 minor pulls in the organdy skirt (or they might be tiny natural variations in the fabric) and a couple pinhead-sized rubs in the organdy under one arm. There is some mild age-related color variation in the bronze inside lining color. None of this is noticed when dress is worn.
