WOW is all we could say when we first saw this dress. A stunning bombshell style vintage little black dress from the 50's. Made of jet black silk or rayon velvet (no labels) with an ivory ruched cotton damask fabric on the bust with thin metallic gold threads running thru it. The skirt has black tulle underneath to keep the ruffles full, the body is fitted hourglass style. Boning in the bodice, metal zipper in back. The straps are velvet and seem long to us. We had to pin them on the mannequin as they were too long for her. The dress is too big for our size 3 mannequin.
