This is a gorgeous 1950s dress which I have had in my personal collection for the past 15 years. I wore this dress to my best friend's wedding in 2003.
Made of fine black rayon crepe, not lined, it has a back metal zipper, gathered bustline, dolman style sleeves and a tiered skirt. It is in excellent condition apart from one tiny run at the bodice, see last photo.
No tags. No stretch to this fabric. The measurements listed below were taken while dress was laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
Please take a moment to review this chart on how to take your own body measurements, so you can correctly determine if this item will fit you. Be sure to always leave several inches between your measurements and the garment measurements for proper fit and ease of movement.
