Vintage 1950s 1960s Red Roses Wiggle Dress

Regular price $ 129.00
This dress leaves me speechless. Floral print in fire engine red, could be roses perhaps, could be something else, teal/forest-ey green leaves. All against a vaguely leopard or cheetah type background of silvery brown and gray with black accents. Dress has a high front neckline plunging o a low V neck in back. Just above the elbow sleeves and a bullet bra shape. Skirt is wiggle style with a small slit in the center back and these draped swags somewhat like a polonaise at each hip.   What an incredibly sexy dress! No label.  The front of the bodice is lined in a silver acetate. The rest of the dress is lined in black organdy or organza. Dress itself feels like a rayon or poly satin. Probably in the medium to large size range.
Excellent vintage condition. Near mint really. The only thing I see is a line along one seam where it shows signs of having been taken in and then let out.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 40"
Natural Waist: 30"
Drop waist seam: 33"
Hips: free due too the swagging there.
Shoulder to natural waist: 15"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 44"
