Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This product is unavailable
This is a fabulous 1950s era black crepe halter dress! The dress is made in a sophisticated “bombshell” style - form fitting, sleeveless, with a velvet neck strap, beaded velvet trimmed bodice, banded midriff, open back and with a demi-lune beaded velvet pocket at either side. There are support stays at the side of the bust. The dress does up at the back with a brass metal zipper. I believe that the fabric is a rayon crepe. There is no label, but the dress is very well made, certainly manufactured.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the dress:
Bust: 36” around, taken at the underarms, perhaps more due to the open back
Waist: 29” around
Length: 52” long, measured flat from the top of the halter strap
Condition: Condition is good but it does have the shinies, someone must have taken an iron to press this at some point in time. This dress looks to have seen moderate use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful bombshell era dress - if it fits your body, this is sure to be noticed!
