Vintage 1960s formal dress from my personal collection. This dress was originally purchased at Stix, Baer & Fuller in St. Louis and worn by my mother to the prom in 1966!
Lemon yellow with a beaded bodice, velvet waist band with a long bow in back. Pleated wait, back metal zipper and the skirt is lined on the upper half with stiff interfacing to give a crinoline effect. This dress is in excellent condition, it was worn once and then put in storage. It has been recently professionally dry cleaned and is ready to wear.
No tags other than union. Made in the USA. No fabric content tag, looks like a rayon or possibly rayon/poly blend.
This is a very small size XXS dress.
