Vintage 50s Cocktail Party Sheath Wiggle Dress in Black Silk Satin Jacquard - Size L
Please take a look at the enlarged versions of the pictures to see closeup views of this dress.
The fabric is a high quality medium weight silk satin with a repeating woven pattern of Asian symbols in black as pictured.
The color is a deep jet black - I have lightened several of the photos to show you the details of the style and fabric.
This is a sheath dress with diagonal front bust darts and long vertical darts in the front and back for a shapely fit.
The cap sleeves are cut from the same fabric as the dress meaning there are no separate sleeve seams.
Does up the center back with a long metal which is stitched in by hand.
There are 8-1/2" tall finished walking slits on each side of the skirt.
The skirt is completely lined with lightweight black silk - the bodice is unlined.
None as this is a custom made dress with hand finished details.
Near Mint ~ No stains, odors, fading, discoloration, rips, snags, holes, or tears.
Gently worn and very well cared for. Freshly dry cleaned and ready for you to wear.
Based on the measurements below, I'd say this could best be worn by a modern size Large.
For a perfect fit, please compare the measurements below to a garment already in your wardrobe which fits you well.
Please note the dress is shown on my size XS mannequin and will fall much better on the proper sized body.
