Pretty, well-made late 1950s or early 60s dress with lovely embellishments. Taupe, short-sleeved sheath with V-neck front and back, nipped waist and straight skirt with inverted kick pleat. Bugle beads, faux pearls, and prong-set rhinestones embellish the sweetheart neckline and curved pocket openings. Bodice is fully lined, skirt is half-lined. Lots of strategic seaming to ensure a curve-conscious fit. Thread belt loops. Metal Crown side zip. Channel your inner Joan Holloway and show off that figure in flattering style.
Fiber/Care: unmarked, feels like rayon with acetate lining, dry-clean
Condition: no flaws to note. belt is missing (though we'd probably snip the loops and go without)
*This dress was previously dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.*
(the dress is too big on Bebe, and clipping it to her distorts
the lines somewhat, so we've also shown it unclipped)
