Vintage Black Satin Sophisticated Cockktail Dress, Ethyl Mabel, Sissons DepartmentStore, Binghamton, New York, ca 1940s

$165.00 USD



  • Satin
This stunning cocktail dress is in good vintage condition: There is a bit of shattering of the satin at the top in the back; the left side of the collar needs to be re-stitched - once that is done, it should cover the shattering.

Please be sure to note the ruching at the left hip; note, too, the asymmetrical panel formed by the 10 buttons and pleating down the the front of the dress and the flair to the back. The 5" collar is actually slightly off the shoulder and there are 6" cap sleeves.

Approximate measurements:
armpit to armpit: 16"
waist (flat): 12"
hips (flat): 15"
back length: 42"

What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; it is a beautiful example of 1940s wearable textile art and fashion.
