Vintage Black Crepe Dress, ca 1950s

$82.00 USD



  • Crepe
“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”
- Coco Chanel

This pretty black crepe dress is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. The original belt has gone missing - but imagine this dress with a crinoline and a wide patent belt!

Please be sure to note the extreme simplicity of the cut of the dress: cross-over neckline, 3/4 sleeves, slight peplum at hips... Note, too, the graceful seaming on the back top and the graceful flow of the skirt.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 19"
arm pit to arm pit: 19"
waist: 30"
hips: 36"
back metal zipper: 7"
side metal zipper 11"
back length: 48"

What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; this is a fine example of wearable 1950s textile art. Please be sure to browse my other Etsy listings: Retropolitanltd, as well as the website for my brick and mortar shop:
