SALE! 20% OFF! Offered is a 1950-1960 Era cocktail dress. It glows in a floral brocade pattern in shades of gold. It is unusual in that it has an under-garment whose main purposes appear to be to serve as a slip and to provide a modesty panel for the lower V-shaped neckline of the dress. Starting with the dress: it has a V-shaped front neckline and cap sleeves. The point of the "V" has a vertical tab. This has a slim bodice leading to a fuller skirt. Creating interest is a line of self fabric 1" buttons down the side seam on both sides. The dress closes at the back with a 22 1/2" zipper. Other measurements: 36" bust; 26 3/4" waist; 43 1/2" shoulder to 2" hem (we did not measure hip because of the folds of the skirt). (Also, after we took the pics, we found the self-fabric belt at 1" wide x 25" first hole, 27 1/2" last hole for total length of 30"; note the belt is stiff. The unusual under-garment or slip is in a nude tone nylon with tulle panniers. It has a 14" metal back zipper, 32" bust; 26" waist and is 39" long. The front hosts the pleated modesty panel in the floral brocade. We found no stains and no holes. We think this was home tailored as we found no labels and the construction leads us to that decision. We have not cleaned this item. No odor noted. Original price $55 Item 45387a
