Super fun Vintage Cancan or dancehall girl dress in bright yellow acetate with black trim. This is circa the late 1940s or earlier 1950s. There' a bit of black trim in the center of the décolletage for modesty, echoed at the end of the cap sleeves and all along the skirt tiers. I'd say in the medium size range. No label. Metal zipper up the side.

Excellent to great vintage condition. Overall. The black trim has small holes. There are several smudges and marks on the yellow, and one orange mark on the back. See photos for examples. It is still very sound and in absolutely wearable shape.

Measurements taken with dress laid flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
