This is a lovely, 1950's vintage, mocha lace cocktail dress with slightly capped sleeves, a ruffled shelf bust detail, a fitted waist and hip line, and a flared skirt. The bodice is ruffled and trimmed with a simple brown velvet ribbon ad the dress has a side zipper for closure. It has been beautifully constructed with many hand-sewn details. The bodice is boned and the stays have been covered in fabric and sewn to its interior. The dress is completely lined in taffeta and tulle. The bust measures approximately 31", the waist measures 27", and the hips measure 32". It would be comparable to a modern day Size 6/8 and is in excellent vintage condition.
