Offered is a 1950 vintage prom dress. It looks like it is straight out of the "Grease" movie! The color is a mellow yellow, but that is where the mellow stops. It is constructed in layers of lace and tulle. Starting with the bodice, we have a strapless gown with sweetheart neckline. The top of the bodice is in pleats covered over with tulle. At the bust, there is a cupped ecru lace extended cummerbund. The skirt has two layers of tulle over satin underskirt. Near the hem are appliques of lace flowers as in the bodice. This applique part is actually a separate tulle panel. We are listing this as XS--note that we have this on our adolescent model and we cannot close the zipper at the back above the waist. So, careful attention to the measurements is necessary if one intends to wear this (which it will tolerate well as its construction is solid). Details: 15" metal back zipper; 34 1/2" bust; 24 1/2" waist; 11" long bodice to waist; 38" waist to hem. We find no stains, no holes. This has not been cleaned. We find no unusual odor. Note for voluminous prom dresses, we find rolling them for packaging works well and they steam back to shape. Original listing price $95 Item 32268a
