Sheath dress from the early 1960s in smooth, jet-black, mid-weight silk. Jewel neckline, bust and vertical darts. Waist detail with two bows above hip gathers and darts on the straight skirt. Lined at skirt only. Closes at back with nylon Talon zip with hook&eye at top and snap at waist. From my own collection.
Vintage purse is not included, but available. Please inquire.
Labels: Jackson Graves (high-end women's boutique in Minneapolis)
Fiber/Care: unmarked, silk, dry-clean
Condition: the shattered silk bodice lining has been removed. the silk skirt lining has a vertical split at the very back next to its seam. the dress is substantial enough to do without a lining, but if you're a stickler, simply wear a slip. very slight white smudge at underarm edge. Price adjusted accordingly.
*This dress has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.*
Note that the bodice is too big on Lola, who, with only a 32" bust, does not fill it out very well (and clipping the dress to fit her distorts the lines a bit). The dress would look better on a fuller figure.
