This is a gorgeous vintage prom dress from the 1980s made by Jessica McClintock Gunne Sax. The bodice of the dress is made out of a jet black rayon velvet that is fully lined in black acetate. The bodice is fitted with flexible boning for support, and it has a sweetheart neckline. The skirt of the dress is made out of burgundy red acetate taffeta that has metallic gold striped running down it. The skirt is very full, and it has an attached black tulle crinoline underneath to help show off the fullness. The dress has a large taffeta bow accent in the back, and it closes with a zipper down the back.

The tag labels this a vintage size 5/6. I think it would best fit a modern Juniors size Small or Misses size XS. The actual measurements are as follows:

Bust: 16" across, underarm to underarm (32" around. There are darts just below this that expand the bust area slightly. My mannequin has a 32" bust, and this dress fit her well in the chest.)
Waist: 13" across (26" around, measured at the seam between the bodice and the skirt)
Hips: Full and roomy
Length: 29.5" from the underarm to the hem

Note: There is no stretch to the material, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement. All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around.

Condition: This dress is in EXCELLENT condition for its age with no flaws to note.
