Vintage - Size: S - Grey - Evening /Cocktail dress

£59.99

Product description

This unique item from the 1950’s is an evening / cocktail dress.
Condition is fair considering its age but a few places need attention, in particular the zip on the back which is broken. There are also a few tears and stains in the outer shell but most of the ornamental motifs are in good condition.
The dress is fully lined and has a tier of gauze on the lower section.

No labels were found about composition of fabrics, size or garment care.

The garment features:
• A V shaped neckline with some gauze
• Cap sleeves and a slim waist to give the wearer the typical look of the period
• A very stiff lower section that gives volume to the garment

Please carefully check measurements below

Bust: approx. 32 inches / 81 cm
Waist: 28 inches / 71 cm
Length of dress from mid shoulders: 44 inches / 112 cm

Some restoration work to be done but with its ultra feminine design, this is an iconic garment of the 1950’s.
