Larger Size Vintage Royal Blue Fine Wool Knit Belted Dress with Embroidery, Bead, Rhinestone and Faux Pearl Detail, ca 1950s

$110.00 USD


Please note: this dress has been clipped to fit my mannequin; the true color is a royal blue - try as I might, I could not get my camera to show this! The interior of the belt is marked 14 1/2 which I assume is the vintage size.

This Real Woman's dress is in excellent vintage condition: the only flaw I can find are a 2 small catches in the knit that can be mended quite easily from the underside.

Please be sure to note the intricate floral embroidery from shoulder to shoulder and just under the neckline - with its beading,clear rhinestones and faux pearls; note, too the wavy banding around the neckline and around the flattering cap sleeves.

Approximate measurements: (there is quite a bit of stretch in the knit - these measurements are without the stretch)
arm pit to arm pit: 18"
shoulder to shoulder: 17"
waist (flat): 14"
hips (flat): 19"
length: 43"
belt: 35"

Sure to be a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection and a sensation wherever one wears it, this dress is a beautiful example of 1950s textile art.
