50s Black Party Dress
Vintage 50s Black Party Dress
A gorgeous party dress with lovely details. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline with an organza modesty panel and a shawl shoulder that transitions into a large collar in the back. The bodice is fitted and has side bust darts. The aline skirt has side tucks at the waist and a back kick pleat. The dress has a full back metal zipper. A stunning detail on this dress is the attached organza panel that drapes beautifully down the front and projects the illusion of a fuller skirt. A separate pleated organza sash completes the look. A wonderful dress in fantastic vintage condition.
