Vintage Red and Green Floral on Black Silk Sheath Dress, ca Late 1950s, Early 1960s

$110.00 USD



  • Silk
This pretty silk dress is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. The interior tag reads: Pure Silk.

Please be sure to note the Empire effect caused by the narrow welting just under the bust; this same welting is in reverse in the back and dips sassily just above the derriere. There is a thin bow at the center. Thesed same bows are repeated on the iconic 3/4 sleeves. The m\silk millinery flower detail is pinned on - it should probably be steamed a bit to freshen it up.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 20"
arm pit to arm pit: 20"
waist: 28\32"
hips: 35"
back metal zipper: 23"
sleeve length: 14"
length: 43"

What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; this is a fine example of wearable late 1950s, early 1960s textile art.
