A sensational 1950's Ceil Chapman black taffeta dress features a tall structured pleated collar. Pardon my excitement, but it is to die for! The sexy scoop neckline contrasts with the dramatic collar in the rear that the designer has chosen to extend down into the bodice. Black taffeta cord sash and full skirt. Boned bodice lined with black silk organza. Closes at the side with a metal zipper and hook and eye.
Note- although the bust measures 34", and so does our mannequin, the rib cage was too small for the dress so we photographed the piece with zipper ajar on the left side.
Label: Ceil Chapman (Black label wit white stitching)
Condition: Excellent condition. Although clean, recommend dry cleaning for slight storage odor.
Bust 33-34" maximum
Length: 46 1/2"
