Sorry, this item has sold.

From the 1950s, a creamy white cocktail dress that could stand in beautifully as a less-formal wedding (or Maid of Honor), graduation, father-daughter dance, coming out/debutante, or other special occasion dress.

  • Elegant details include a ballet neckline, kimono-cut sleeves, princess bodice seams, lower V-back neckline, and delicate waistline piping.
  • Lovely lace applique at bodice.
  • Fully lined, with hem tape and pinked seams, and lingerie snap stays to keep your bra straps from showing.
  • Closes at back with metal zipper and hooks and eyes at top and waist.
  • Union made in the U.S.A.

Labels: only a 1955-1963 ILGWU label remains

Fiber/Care: no content tag, feels like a crisp silk or rayon blend / dry-clean

Condition: A few tiny spots, as shown. They do not detract from the overall look of the dress, which presents beautifully, and they are inconspicuous in normal lighting. Underarms are clean, showing no signs of wear. The price has been adjusted accordingly, taking its minor flaws and small size into account. 

*We've had this dress professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear."
