  • WONDERFUL Copper Taffeta 1950's Cocktail Dress w/ Gathered & Draped Skirt
    Quick shop

    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. 

    DETAILS:
    Label: None  
    Fabric: Taffetta
    Lining:  Sculptural mesh

    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.
