50s/60s Lavender Trapunto Party Dress - xs, sm

SKU: 00661-001

From the late 1950s or early 1960s, a dress in the loveliest shade of lavender, with textural trapunto detail at the lower skirt. Shapely bodice has vertical and bust darts, a higher, shallow V-neck, and straps that narrow at the top. Bodice is self-lined, skirt lined in a buckram-type fabric for body. Metal back zip with top hook&eye. Quite substantial and weighty. A high-quality garment.

Labels: Safinia Saks Fifth Avenue (Safinia was a house brand of the famous high-end department store in NYC)

Fiber/Care: no tags, almost certainly a linen-look rayon, dry-clean

Condition: very minor allover wear with no obvious flaws. there's a short length of wonky seam waist and some spots only on the interior of the lining (see photos). there's no line of demarkation, but we suspect the hem may have been taken up a little bit at some point. price reflects these very minor flaws.
