This pretty dress is in excellent vintage condition: the only flaws I can find are under the right arm - the seam needs to be re-stitched and one missing rhinestone - easily replaced.

Please be sure to note the graceful scoop neck and the beautiful rhinestone design radiating from the neckline and on the shoulders; note as well, the flattering cap sleeves, belted waist and flare skirt that goes "whooosh" when you move and the amazing swirly pattern on the skirt and belt. This pattern is made of a kind of iridescent plastic material. The skirt material is a papery yet stiff satiny material.

Approximate measurements:
bust: 30"
waist: 28"
hips: 38"
length: 39"
metal zipper length: 10"
belt length: 29"
sleeve length: 6"

Sure to be a hit whenever you wear it, this dress would be a wonderful addition to your vintage dress collection; it is a prime example of wearable 1950s textile art and style.
