This beautiful classic vintage evening gown was created in the 1960s. The bodice is black velvet over an acetate lining. It is sleeveless with a Sabrina style neckline and v-cut back. The skirt is a cream toned silk floral damask over a lining of muslin. The lining of the skirt also includes an unattached tulle petticoat. The gathered skirt falls from the natural waist, where a sweet attached velvet rose corsage is featured. The skirt falls to about ankle length (depending upon the height of the wearer). There is a concealed metal zipper in the back of the gown. There are stains around the hem of the dress. The measurements are as follows: Bust: 30 inches, Waist: 24 inches, Hips: Full, Length: 53 inches.
