Late 1950s or early 1960s party dress in purple on white cotton floral with a lavender overly of sheer chiffon. Kimono-cut short sleeves, ballet neckline, bust and vertical darts, nipped waist, and thread belt loops. Tiny pleats below waist creates the gently full skirt. Unlined. Metal Green brand back zipper with top hook&eye. Shown with and without a crinoline, not included.
Labels: none - probably home sewn

Condition: there's a minuscule hole in overlay at the back of the left sleeve, and what appears to be a cigarette burn (a melted hole that will not enlarge) in the back skirt overlay. there are a few very minor pulls here and there on the overlay. none of these flaws is conspicuous or detracts from the overall look of the dress, which presents as nearly perfect. The original belt is missing (our ribbon is not included).
