♛The Details

Extremely high end 1950s cocktail dress in a fine silk chiffon of pale blue and deep cobalt blue floral clusters, layered over a violet blue silk interior. The entire dress -- and I mean, shoulders to hem, front and back -- is covered in glittering sapphire blue prongset rhinestones. Much wow factor! The classic hourglass silhouette is enhanced with a soft belt-like detail with flat feminine bow at waist, and a rear kick pleat. Closes with side metal zipper and back neck keyhole.

Designer label is L. Doctor -- sure wish I knew more about this label, because you can tell this was an expensive dress.

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

♛The Measurements

About a modern size XL
Bust (underarm to underarm, measured flat then doubled): 44"
Waist: 34"
Hips: 46"
Shoulder measured down to waist area: about 17"
Waist to hem: 29" and has 2 1/2" hem allowance

♛The Condition

Excellent vintage shape with no overt flaws or issues that I could find. There's a little bit of mild fading of the violet lining at the underarms of dress, but it doesn't affect the outer (chiffon print fabric) layer and is not seen when worn. Otherwise, I couldn't find anything to note.
