This is a vintage early 50s black lace dress or cocktail gown with black satin band around the hips. The sleeves are made in a raglan style and the dress has a high rounded neckline. It is constructed with a black rayon taffeta lining that has a lace layer over it. The bodice has a bustier shaped slip that is supported with “stays” at either side. The lace shows skin tone above the bustier and on the sleeves. The dress does up with a metal zipper at the back and a covered button at the back neckline - an opening is formed between the button and the zipper. The dress is cut fairly straight from the hips to the bottom and has a below the knee length. The dress was large for my mannequin and therefore pinned at the back for a better fit, however, you can see that the underarm area does not fit the mannequin properly.
