This seductive 1950s black silk satin cocktail dress is of superb quality and construction and in excellent vintage condition.
The dress features a sweetheart neckline in soft black netting with a nude satin underlay and lace ruffle embellishment over the bust. There are spaghetti straps, princess seams along the bodice and a slightly dropped, curved waistline atop of a classic 50s full skirt to create a beautiful hourglass silhouette. There is some boning in the bodice for extra support, and a central zip fastening at the reverse. The piece is unlabelled although we believe it to be made in the US. Would best suit US size 4, UK size 8.
