From the 1950s here's party dress that was acquired from the estate of a wealthy 106 year old woman. The dress has a wide V shaped neckline, short sleeves, banding the crosses the bodice and forms a belt around the waistline and a full skirt. There is a flower that was affixed to the center neckline - it is now detached, and I will leave it like that, as one has the option of either using it or not (see last close-up photo). The dress does up the back with a metal zipper. The dress is lined with silk organza above the waistline and was posed with a crinoline underneath - to create the same (or fuller) look, you would have to provide your own crinoline. The label reads Delicia.
Color: Grayish toned violet blue
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the dress:
Shoulders: 16" approximate - difficult to measure due to raglan cut of the sleeve
Sleeves: 8" long from the approximated shoulder
Bust: 36"-38" around, taken at the underarms, depending on the looseness/tightness of fit
Waist: 26" around
Hips: Full - 46"+ around, but meant to hang loosely
Hemline: 116" around
It's in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or other defect - this dress was well cared for and stored over the years.
This is a lovely 50s era party dress - pretty color and style, with excellent quality fabric.
