Vintage 60s Black Wiggle Dress with Marabou Trim by Frances Prisco Ladies Size S

This is a wonderful black cocktail wiggle dress designed by Frances Prisco for Ted Brown, probably during the early 60s. The dress is made in a form fitting above the knee cocktail length with marabou feather trim along the hemline and black beading sparingly positioned towards the bottom of the dress. The beads are black glass while the larger drops are black plastic. The dress is sleeveless with a squared neckline at the front and a low scoop at the back. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper. It is fully lined in a black rayon fabric.

Age: early 1960s, possibly late 50s

Label: Ted Brown Designed by Frances Prisco

Color: Black

Material: I believe that the fabric is silk crepe

Sizing: No size is indicated, which I believe that this should fit a small size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders: 14 1/2” across the shoulder straps

It is in very good, clean condition with no wear, tear, holes, stains or odors. This dress has been very well cared for and stored over the years.
