♛The Details

Absolutely spellbinding 1950s dress of a sturdy, multidimensional silk? faille with a woven lace illusion pattern in fiery red and black. Jet black acetate lining. I love this fabric as it's quite sturdy, so you could dance the night away without a care, but still look dressed to the nines. This fantastic frock has tailored touches throughout, like extra seaming at the 3/4 length sleeve's elbow, a petersham belt inside, and hidden bands in back bodice to hold its structure. Classic New Look silhouette. And check out the dramatic asymmetrical seaming, mirrored from bodice to skirt, and crowned with a sparkling rhinestone brooch pin (removable, though it is included in the sale).

Closes with back metal zipper.

I found a label hanging on (literally) by a thread inside the skirt: Goldring's Couture. I know nothing about this designer or store, but this dress certainly has all the bells and whistles you could want from the era.

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 M
Bust (underarm area measured flat, then doubled) to 38"
Waist 27"/snug 28"
Hips Full
Bodice length, shoulder to waist seam 15 3/4"
Skirt length 26 1/2" with 2 1/2" hem allowance in addition

♛The Condition

Excellent vintage shape with no flaws or issues noted. Fabric looks clean and flawless, though it does have a faint musty scent so could benefit from dry-cleaning before its first event. I sewed the dangling label on more securely inside the skirt. The rhinestone pin IS included in sale!
