Vintage 50s Maroon & Black Dress // 1950s Horizontal Pleated Circle Skirt Ladies Size Medium

Age: 1950s

Label: No label

Description: This is a 1950s dress made in black and maroon colored cotton. The maroon has a black undertone to it as was often seen in 50s fabrics. The neckline of the dress is elasticized on the vertical sides, so that the neckline can be worn open, with the sleeves down the arm. The skirt is cut in a circle form with wide pleating that alternates in maroon and black. The maroon sections are raised and each has a vertical stripe to one side. The bodice has horizontal banding and striping with an overlapping band along the neckline. The dress is posed with a crinoline, but none is provided - to achieve the same full 50s look, you should use a crinoline underneath the skirt. As mentioned, I believe that the dress can be worn on or off the shoulder as posed in the different photos, but you would have to see how it might fit on your body shape. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper and the dress in unlined.

Color: Maroon and black

Material: Cotton

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the dress:

Bust: 36"-37" around, taken at the underarms, depending on the looseness/tightness of fit

Waist: 30" around

Hips: Full, due to circle cut

It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or other defect - this dress was well cared for and stored over the years.

This is a great 50s dress with very attractive color and style......
