How fantastic would this be with black knit high waist capris or leggings! This wonderful top is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. The interior label reads: Leslie Fay Knits, R.

Please be sure to note the intricate beading and rhinestone floral detail down the right side and across the waist: the flowers, comprised of black seed, bugle and faceted beads with prong set rhinestone centers appear to be climbing; perhaps the additional scattered prong set rhinestones are raindrops. Note, too the gently rounded neck and iconic boxy cut.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder - shoulder: 19.5"
arm pit to arm pit: 21"
length: 22"
(metal) zipper length: 19.75"

This iconic pretty top is sure to top off your vintage or contemporary ensemble with flair; it is a prime example of wearable late 1950s, early 1960s textile art and style.
