Vintage 50's party dress. Great for party or prom. This dress has a wide circular skirting great for swing dance events. It is of an unusual construction in that it comes with a taffeta slip that has a fully boned bodice with a velvet banding at the bust area. It has a metal zip closure in the rear as does the dress. I have pictured it. The dress is fashioned of silk and trimmed with silk velvet bows. There is no label inside the dress leading me to believe this was custom made.
Condition: the dress is in excellent condition. There are no holes or tears; no underarm staining. There are 3-4 tiny age specs on the skirting, but they are very tiny and not noticeable. I did not try to remove. There is a slight variation in the color; not sure if I would even call it faded but I am mentioning it as I fold the dress to put it away I am noticing some color variation. It is not apparent when it is on the form.
Color: Baby pink
Content: dress is all silk; with silk velvet bow trim. The slip is rayon taffeta.
