Here is a lovely long black velvet gown. It is very fitted and has a plunging back. It closes with a zipper with a hook and eye above. The sleeves are slightly larger than a cap sleeve. There is quite a bit of flair around the bottom. The measurements are: Armpit to armpit 32", Waist 26", Hips 34", Length from neckline down 54 1/2" and Across back of shoulders 13.50". The label inside reads Cameo New York. There is also a ILGWU label which was in use from 1955-1963. The inside interfacing around the neck has that dark burgundy discoloration. There are a few areas where the velvet is smashed down but this can be eliminated with a good pressing.
