Posh Girl Vintage

1950's White Collar Black Dress

Here's yet another super gorgeous, and so classic, vintage dress...circa 1950's. Very high quality from Benjamin's of Albuquerque. It has it's own black petticoat underneath attached to waist. Very black crisp cotton with white cotton pique collar that snaps in the back along with the metal zipper. Very full skirt with a fitted bodice & waist. Allot of construction went into this dress...an equal one in style & quality today would be in the $800 range new. There's only about 1/2" extra fabric tops to let out at seams. This is vintage clothing at it's best... Simple & Classic....Very Audrey Hepburn.

Condition Details: No holes or stains. Some general but typical wear not in any one place. A bit of color wear on the white collar but just where it folds on the edge. No stains or freys at all. The only real flaw is a repair (3" long X 1/4" tall) in the back rite side on the waist. We tried to lighten the photo so you can see where it is. It does not show in the front, just side & back. The good news is it's right where a belt covers it. A thin black belt will add style & hide the repair. We didn't do the repair so it could be taken to a tailor & redone smaller.
