Vintage Classic Black Taffeta Gown with Incredible Matching Shrug, ca 1950s

$275.00 USD



  • Taffeta
This beautiful gown is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. I cannot decide if it is more beautiful with the shrug or without. The dress comes with a sassy swooooosh when one moves due to the taffeta fabric.

The gown itself is a true classic: spaghetti straps, light boning in the bust, V decolletage, low, square back, nipped waist, gently flared skirt. Add the shrug, and it is simply an amazing ensemble! The shrug features 1 button in the front and it is gathered, folded and pleated to form a gently flounced surround; lined in tulle, it has an opening for each arm and thereby forms a flattering cap sleeve from the front view; it forms a slight V in the back, as well. There is a loop on either side so it can be attached to each spaghetti strap.

Approximate measurements:
bust: 30"
waist: 25"
hips: free
length: 57" + 5" spaghetti strap
back (metal) zipper length: 13"

Sure to be a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection, this gown is a beautiful example of 1950s textile art and fashion.
