1960's New Old Stock NOS party dress. Shift style with no defined waist which was popular in the 60's. Fabric is a tangerine chiffon over a solid lining, closing in the back with a long metal zipper. Long sleeves are sheer chiffon with no lining and beaded cuffs. The same beading accentuates the medium high neck.
Tags are still attached to the sleeves. One reads Georgette, 100% Cuprammonium Rayon, A New Deluxe Elegan Finish. The other side reads Step-An. Also a size tag of 20 and the original price tag of $33.00 from Lazarus. The tags attached to the inside of the dress are a union and a size of 20.
There is some condition issues. On the upper bodice and shoulders there is 5 small holes in the chiffon. This was caused by being folded and the neck beading picked the fabric. On the upper back area there is a long oval stain on the lining which shows through to the outside. It appears to be a water stain. I have photographed these areas closely for your inspection. My pricing reflects this area of damage.
A vintage size 20 but please check the measurements carefully.
Bust is 42, waist and hips are 40, shoulders are 16, sleeve length is 23 and total length is 38 1/2 inches.
