50s Little Black Silk Sheath Dress

SKU: 00497-011
Sorry, this item has sold.

Beautifully made, deceptively simple little black dress from the 1950s in deliciously drapey silk crepe. Seams and gathers in all the right places create a figure-flattering, curve-skimming silhouette. Front placket hides snaps and buttons. Metal Talon side zip. Unlined. Another example of mid-century loveliness from the estate of Dorothy E. Oh, what a wardrobe she had! Destined to be your go-to dress from work to cocktails and beyond. 

Dress is jet black. Some photos lightened to show detail. Dress is clipped to better fit Delphine in first photo only.

Labels: "Vogue Couturier Design" -- this is not a manufacturer's label, but a label provided by Vogue Pattern Company with their line of designer patterns intended for skilled home sewists. This dress was made by Dorothy.
