Vintage Kitty Copeland size 42 (UK12) green velvet dress

£90.00

Product description

This stunning, vintage Kitty Copeland dress was made for the store Fifth Avenue, Regent-Oxford Street, London. Dating from the early 1960's the dress is made in a beautiful deep green velvet fabric and is sleeveless with a shallow boat neckline. The bodice is neatly fitted into the waist with bust and long body darts opening out into a narrow A line skirt. A deep, inverted pleat is set into each side seam from the top hip adding fullness to the skirt and giving it a typical early '60's style. Velvet bows trim the top of the pleats just below the waist line. The dress is fastened at the back by a long, nylon zip with a black hook and eye at the top and is just below knee length. It is lined to the waist with olive green silky fabric which is fading to bronze in places. The velvet is backed with a fibrous, dark grey lining making it feel very firm and a good weight. It is in very good condition and wearing in a way velvet generally does with shading in small areas. There are not any fabric or laundering labels in the dress.
