1950's Designer Black Formal Evening Dress
This is a VERY special and stunning vintage designer evening gown. Circa 1950's... a vintage all black party dress made with the finest lace & tons of tulle & taffeta. The lace is tulle with embroidery all over it. Metal zipper in the back, fitted waist with a big full skirt. Skirt has 3 layers. We lightened the photos so you can see some details. It's very hard to see details on an all black dress. The buttons & the neck bow are all silk velvet. The liner on the bodice is strapless, then it has the sheer lace overlay with the velvet buttons and bow around the neck, it's a bit billowy in it's style from the seam under the bust up to the neck. You'll be the star of the show where ever you go in this number!
Condition Details: No holes or stains. Very minimal wear. This is pretty close to near mint. The only reason we didn't mark it mint is the small repair to the lace on the back of skirt below the zipper. Repair is aprox. 2" but it gets lost in all the folds, you can't see it unless you know to look.
