The bag is 7" tall without the handle x 7'' wide. I will open up to 6" deep.

A really wonderful 1950's cocktail dress in shimmering copper taffeta. Sleeveless bodice with square neckline. Dress has a fabulous full skirt with gathered and draped panels. There is an attached sculptural mesh under layer inside the top half of the skirt (not like a hip pannier, but a stiff nylon mesh with a curved, bound hem) that gives the gathers the proper shape when worn. We have also shown it here with a crinoline... not included). Side metal zipper.
Lining: Sculptural mesh
(Hemmed about 4'')
BEST FITS: XS, S or M (see measurements)
CONDITION: In good to excellent vintage condition. Some underarm marking... mostly at the right side (fortunately the color and sheen of the taffeta masks it a bit). Some seam stress. Perspiration mark above the waistline. There are two watery type stains in the gathers on the front skirt. A pin hole on the rear bodice. A small discoloration inside the strap. All in all the dress still presents beautifully.
Absolutely adorable pussy bow blouse with purple dots allover. Mother-of-pearl buttons down the front. Round collar. The straps for the bow are attached to the collar with buttons and can be removed if desired. Blouse comes with the original tags from the 50's inclusive washing instructions. Wear it with your favorite pencil skirt or your favorite pair of jeans. Just lovely!

The skirt was hemmed short in the past and then taken back out. This has left one distinct line of slight discoloration, which mostly could be removed. We have professionally restitched the hemline at it's lowest point. We also added two new buttons in red, original buttons were missing. Skirt now presents beautifully.
