Vintage 1960s Black Sheath Dress with Button Back

The Black Velvet Emporium

1 Available

Classic vintage black dress circa the 1960s. Simple and elegant sheath style with a gently pleated skirt at the waist, and a small kick pleat in the back of the skirt. Slightly blousey bodice but is long waisted so would be good for a taller torso as well and would be less blousey that way.  Boat neck in front and back. 3/4 sleeves. Has a back metal zipper from the waist and gorgeous shiny black buttons from the waist up in back. Medium size, I'd say. No Label. Feels like a raw silk or slubbed cotton or maybe a blend. Fully lined.

Excellent vintage condition. The only thing I could find to note was the slightest bit of color fade on the lining inside. You can see a bit of white on the skirt in the fourth photo but I think that's just some dust because it's wiped right off since.

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.
