STUNNING RARE original 1950’s strapless party/prom dress in a divine black & white chiffon organza. This dress looks heavy, but is actually reasonably light. The black floral design is not a print – it is in textured velvet flocking. The style embodies the 50’s – exuding femininity & figure flattering with it’s narrow boned bodice & full skirt. Label reads TALL : Over Five Seven Shops. No fabric contents label. Snatch this extra RARE dress up quickly – not only is it an extra large size but designed for a taller frame. Strapless (boned) bodice with white flocked chiffon overlay & pleated white tulle at the bustline, adorable black velvet ribbon at the waist, which is a little droopy. I will provide a length of double sided velvet ribbon in case you would like to replace it.and a wonderfully full twirling white tulle skirt with chiffon overlay trimmed in black velvet flocking, with a scalloped hemline. There are an amazing four layers to the skirt – a three quarter length underskirt of stiff ivory muslin to give the skirt extra body, an ivory satin acetate lining, followed by a single layer of pleated white tulle ..some pleats have relaxed…to give the skirt extra body, topped with a layer of organza chiffon. The dress flows gloriously over a crinoline. The dress closes down the side with a metal zipper & fastener. The entire dress is lined in ivory satin acetate. Vintage size label indicates 22, This is not a modern size 22, but would likely fit a size US 14 or 16. Note this is designed for a tall figure & the bodice is proportionately longer.
