CLEARANCE: Vintage 1940s 1950s Black Wiggle Dress / Peplum Polonaise

Just stunning black wiggle dress circa late 1940s or earlier 50s. Feels like a silk faille. Feast your eyes on that amazing polonaise!!! Two big bows gather it up to a flounce on either side. There is an entire pencil skirt underneath with its own separate zipper. Peekaboo keyhole opening at the collar and another bow at the back of the neck atop another keyhole opening. No label. Probably a small size. Please see condition below. So much to love about this dress.

Great vintage condition. The dress itself is in fantastic shape. The only real issues are a missing shoulder pad on one side, and then the underskirt has a broken zipper ( the second zipper on the back of the dress --the one you can see in the photos--works just fine). Replace those, stitch up the seam below that zipper and you're golden. This dress has tons of life and love left in it and my lack of seamstress skills are your gain! Priced accordingly, as is, and why its in my Scratch and Dent section.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 35"
Waist: 25"
Hips: approx. 35" hard to get exactly due to the broken zipper
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 45"

Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
