This iconic party dress is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. The skirt has an red satin slip over which is a layer of red tulle and then the red tulle top layer which is spattered with gold sequins. The bodice is boned for shaping. There is an interior red strap on either side for hanging. Please be sure to note the asymmetrical bust - the right side is tucked tulle over satin and the left, tulle over satin with a tulle ruffle.

Approximate measurements: ***I could not get the zipper all the way over my mannequin's "rib cage," so I have it clipped on the left side!
arm pit to arm pit: 14"
waist: 22"
hips: 38"
back length: 42 1/2""
side (metal) zipper length: 13"

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