Vintage 1940s 1950s Ribbon Wiggle Dress

Beautiful vintage black ribbon dress circa late 1940s or early 1950s. Wiggle style with criss cross bands of narrow ribbon. Beautifully detailed neckline. Cap sleeves. darts at the bust and a few pleats at the waist. Small shoulder pads. Feels like a silk blend or rayon to me. Has a side metal zipper. Medium to smaller large size, I'd say. Unlined. No label.

Excellent vintage condition. Apart from some color fade ( to the ribbon only, the base is fine) in the armpits and on one side of the neckline, the only thing to note is a lack of bottom hem. Either the hem came completely out, or ( more likely) someone cut it to shorten it and then left it unhemmed. I've chosen to not hem it so that whomever buys this can hem it to their desired length.

Measurements when lying flat, Doubled at bust, waist, and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 41"
Waist: 32"
Hips: 44"
Shoulder to waist: 17"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 46.5"

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.
