Little black dress- LBD- Short black dress-Black cocktail dress- 50s dress

110.00

This is a gorgeous black dress from the 1950s. It was handmade and does not have a label. It's a short cocktail length and and has a 14 inch covered zipper going down the back. There is a piece of material along the back side of the collar that adds a nice design detail and attaches with snaps. It looks like a cowl neck for the back or a small "shelf" of fabric. The waist yoke band is directly under the bust and ranges from 3.5 to 4.5 inches wide. This dress would be perfect for an evening event. Just add some sparkly jewelry and you're set! 

Details...

Fits like: Extra Small/ Petite (this is pictured on a petite size 0 dress form)
Bust: 36 inches
Waist(lower measurement of waist yoke): 25 inches
Hips: free
Length: 37 inches
Material: N/A
Label: N/A
Condition: Good vintage condition. The dress looks great except for a worn area on the top of the right sleeve (see last photo). It was hand washed as well as dry cleaned and I'm thinking this might have happened at the dry cleaners. Because it was hand made, the skirt hem is not exact. Alterations may be needed. 
 

* If you have any questions regarding the fit or condition of this item please contact The Ivy Retreat prior to purchasing. I will be more than happy to send extra pictures and give additional information if needed. The condition and style of all garments will be described in detail. Vintage items have been worn and loved, so tiny imperfections may be present and care is to be taken with their preservation.
