Vintage 1950s Red Velvet Dress

The Black Velvet Emporium

1 Available

This is a stunning dress from the 1950s in cherry red cotton velvet. She is too small to fit either of my dress forms, alas, so I've pinned it for photos. Metal zipper on the side. Sight bullet shape to the bust. Scooped neckline in front and a slightly lower V in back. Love those gathered sleeves! Kick pleat in back. No label, extra small to small.

Excellent vintage condition. All I have found worth noting are a few pin sized black dots that are barely noticeable. Oh and I think it could do with a stitch or two at the top of the zipper. Just to shore it up there a bit more.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 36" Note this is a dol,,an sleeve so there is some play here.
Waist: 26"
Hips: 38"
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 40"

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.
