60s Black Cocktail Dress - med, lg

SKU: 00460-003
Sorry, this item has sold.

Reminiscent of Mad Men's Megan Draper singing Zou Bisou Bisou. Elegant black scoop neck cocktail sheath has chiffon flutter sleeves that come nearly to the elbow in front, reaching to below the waist at back. This creates an elegant and wonderfully feminine effect as you move. Satin bow at center front, with bust darts above and double princess seams below the empire waist. Metal Murlen back zip with top hook&eye. Fully lined. From the 1960s and the Kathryn G. estate.

Note that the back of the dress is not wrinkled or odd, it's just pin clipped to fit Bebe, so is a bit distorted in the photos.

Labels: Carol Craig, plus original manufacturer's hang tags

Fiber/Care: 100% rayon, dry-clean only

Condition: this dress came to us unworn with the original tags attached, but because it was stored improperly on a foam-covered wire hanger, it had a few dings. we restitched a length along the left back neckline where the chiffon had come away. we tucked under and stitched in place a small break in the chiffon at the top left shoulder. there are some minor foxing spots on the exterior shoulders and color shift on the interior shoulders. one support loop has snapped. nonetheless, the dress looks great, and we've priced it well below what it would have been, were we around to warn Kathryn against those dastardly foam hanger covers!

*We removed the original tags to have the dress professional dry-cleaned.*
