Vintage 50's Fifties Ceil Chapman Red Rockabilly Silk Dress Couture Estate

Fresh to the internet from a prominent Kentucky estate..Bombshell Silk Red

Vintage 50's Ceil Chapman silk red bombshell mad men era dress...one of Marilyn Monroe's favorite designers

In very good condition overall...one button is missing on the long sleeve...it is an easy fix with a piece of the same fabric from the hem or inside and a new button recovered with it to match....Original belt still here as well

I see no holes and no stains

GORGEOUS woven top (three separate pieces woven the same on the front and on the back bodice ...raglan sleeve...slightly off the shoulder....very mad men era sexy !

The hem is out and needs to be sewn back again (I recommend having this hand done)

All measurements are taken flat with no ease

Waist approx. 24"

Shoulder to waist is approx. 15 "

Bust is approx. 34 " a hard measure with this style top

Belt measures 26 1/2 " and is not adjustable so if it does not fit you can replace it with another suitable belt or scarf

Side metal zipper working well

Shoulder to hem approx. 44 "

Shoulder to bottom of sleeve is approx. 23 "
