Vintage 1950s Black Fit and Flare Dress With Polkadot Bow

  • $149.00


I've been hoarding this dress or ages. Its so special. Beautiful black cotton dress from the 1950s with black on white Polkadot inserts and bow on the skirt. There are three perfect fabric covered black buttons just under the bow in a vertical line. Not quite a full circle skirt but close. Simple sleeveless bodice with princess seams and aa slight bullet bra shape. Has metal zipper in the back. No label now but there was one once as there is a union label and a lot label. Probably a small to smaller medium.

Excellent vintage condition. I mean, almost mint really. I think maybe the white parts aren't quite as perfectly white as they used to be but really...its so good. Oh also, this isn't a flaw, just a note but at some point the shoulders were taken up about an inch. I've left it as it was done quite well. But the fabric is still there so if you need it a little longer, you could let that down and viola!

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
Armpit to armpit across bust: 39" barely
Waist: 29" also barely
Hips: full
Shoulder to waist: 15.5
Shoulder to bottom hem: Adjustable but approx. 39"
