50s Black Cocktail Dress - xs, sm

SKU: 00571-006

From the 1950s, a black cocktail dress with elbow-length gusseted sleeves, nipped waist, slim skirt, low squared back, and a dramatic, sculptural detail and fringed swag at left hip.  Beautifully constructed with dressmaker details including lingerie stays and strategic darts in all the right places. Note the asymetrical back metal zipper with hooks&eyes at top and waist. Fully lined. Mid-century perfection. Just superb.

Labels: none - expertly dressmaker or home sewn

Fiber/Care: no tags, silk in a substantial and luxurious weave, dry-clean

Condition: no flaws to note. the skirt looks rather short on Delphine, but she's over 6 ft. tall with 36" inseam, and we suspect this dress was made for a much shorter woman. 

*This cocktail dress is dry-cleaned and ready to wear.*

Garment Measurements:
 bodice: 15"/38cm
 bust: 32"/81.25cm + darts
 waist: 24"/61cm (fits Delphine's 24" waist without a problem)
 hips: max 41"/104cm
 length: 37"/94cm + 2.5"/6cm hem

For reference, this dress fits Delphine easily and well, and she measures b: 32, w: 24, h: 35.25 *
