Vintage 1960s Lanz Black velvet Wiggle Dress

The Black Velvet Emporium

Classic, simple style, well made, black cotton velvet dress by Lanz, circa 1960s. Sleeveless, with a deep squared neckline, and a small slit in the back of the skirt for ease of movement. Fully lined in what looks and feels like a cotton. Label reads: Lanz. I'd say small size but quite hourglass-ey.

Excellent, near mint, vintage condition. The only thing to note, and its not a flaw is: the neckline seems lower than normal, and there are four ( of an original five) snaps at the bust which were originally probably attached to some sort of modesty panel or something, There are seams at the shoulders so should be easy to take these up, or possibly find another panel for the front.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 40"
Waist: 25"
Hips: 38"
Shoulder to waist: 15.5"
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.
