This is a vintage 50s black taffeta party dress with a fabulous back. The upper back has a narrow opening with four pinkish beige ribbons diagonally tied around the seam line. Below that is a large bow in the same thick organza fabric. The front of the dress has a high neckline and the shoulders have padding. The sleeves are raglan cut with a 3/4 length. The dress has a defined waist with peplum that accents the top of the hip area. The skirt of the dress is cut in a full circle - the dress was posed with a crinoline in order to achieve the full effect, but no crinoline is supplied with the dress. The dress does up the side with a brass zipper. The plain bodice on the front of the dress lends itself to wearing a necklace (see photo for example)Age: 1950s
