Vintage 1940s 1950s New Look Black Swan Dress, Elinor Gay

Beyond beautiful black dress from the later 1940s, or early 1950s. Makes me think of a Black Swan. The most amazing bodice with a black velvet modesty panel across the bust and then black lace and velvet straps over the shoulders. The velvet carries all down the back to a bow at the waist and extra long ends hanging down the skirt. Just gorgeous! Almost a full circle skirt. Has metal zipper on the side. No label. A lovely larger size, and great for a taller girl too! Yay! It's just a hair too big for me or I'd have kept this one for sure.

Excellent vintage condition. One small threadbare type hole in back, about the size of two pinheads.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 42"
Waist: 34"
Hips: full
Shoulder to waist: Approx. 17"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 47.5"

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.
