Vintage 1950s Cocktail Dress Black Sequins w Beaded Fringe M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a sparkly 1950s cocktail dress dating most likely to the late 1950s or possibly early 1960s.  This 1950s cocktail dress is made in a mid-calf sleeveless sheath style with a jewel neckline.  It is covered in black sequins and there are diagonal rows of beaded fringe down the dress. It does up the back with a metal zipper and is fully lined with rayon viscose.   

Label: None - label is missing

Sizing:  No size is indicated, and although this 1950s cocktail dress should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  14 1/2” across the top

Bust: 36”

Waist: 26”

Hips: 36”

Length: 41", measured flat from neckline to hemline

Condition: There are bare areas to the shoulders where the sequins have fallen off (see last close-up photo).  I assume that there is the odd sequin missing here and there on the dress, but nothing noticeable.  This dress presents itself very well and with a bit of work adding sequins to the shoulders would be perfect. 

This is a striking 1950s cocktail dress - the type of dress that they would cha cha in - sparkly vintage fashion!
