This gorgeous vintage dress is absolutely STUNNING in person! The mannequin was a little too small, so the photos really don't do it justice!
The dress was made during the 1950s. The tag reads by "A Jerry Gilden Spectator". There is no size indicated, but it would best fit a modern size 8/10. Please see measurements below to guarantee fit.
The shell fabric of this dress is black, lightweight, non-stretch cotton with pretty pink and white small flowers. The silhouette is fitted through the bodice and flares out from the waist into a full skirt. The skirt has a pocket at the left side hip for comfort and practicality. The belt loops are still attached, and there is also an extra inch of seam allowance at the hem, should you wish to lengthen it.
The bodice of this dress has a scoop neckline in both the front and back. The dress closes up the side waist with a 12 inch metal zipper. There are darts at both the waist and bust that have been let out a bit for a little extra breathing room. The cute cap sleeves feature a beautiful lace up design through metallic holes with velvet trim that tie at the shoulders.
Please note that there is a slight bit of discoloration on the metal loops on the sleeves, but it is really not that noticeable (see photos). Over all this garment is in fantastic vintage condition and would look great paired with your favorite pumps for a party!
