Vintage 1950s or 1960s Black Cotton Faille Dress

The Black Velvet Emporium

Fun black cocktail dress from about the 1950s. Wiggle dress style, sleeveless, with a scoop neck in front and lower V neck in back. Cummerbund style detailing at the slightly empired waist, and then a lovely big bow in back! Has metal zipper down the back. No designer label though there are the remains of a faded Lot # label. Id say this is in the small range. Please read condition below.

Good vintage condition. There are some issues here and I've priced this accordingly. The worst is a tiny tear at the right armpit. You can see it  if you look at the closer side view photo. Someone with better skills than my meager ones could probably mend that fairly easily. There is also some general color fade, and another area where a seam has come loose from one of the bows ties.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 35"
Waist: 25"
Hips: 37"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 41.5"

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.
