This beautiful 3 piece vintage dress is absolutely breathtaking in person, the photos really can't do it justice!
The dress was made in the USA during the 1960s by Wolf Fording & Co. The set comes with 4 pieces total, all are original and made to be worn together. There is a stretchy bodysuit, a skirt, a shoulder cape, and a fabric belt. The size is marked 14A, but would best fit modern women's sizes 4-6. Please see measurements below to guarantee fit.
The focal point of this number is the pretty lace shoulder cape. The cape drapes beautifully over the shoulders and is adorned with slightly off-white sequins, beads, and silk flowers. The cape simply pins closed at the back neck, making it adjustable and also allowing the back panels to flutter freely as you move.
The skirt is made of a slightly sheer nylon/acetate fabric with an elastic waistband. The elastic is in good condition with plenty of stretch left to it. The skirt has a lacy ruffle at the hem line that looks very feminine and flows nicely with movement. A long fabric belt ties around the waist to hide the elastic band of the skirt and accentuate the smallest part of the waist.
The bodysuit is primarily made of 87% Nylon and 13% lycra. The back of the garment has a stretchy panel made of 100% acetate. The nude colored spaghetti straps are made of elastic. The bodysuit is the only piece of this set that shows any wear. The elastic straps are a bit dried out and could use replacing. There is also some yellowing throughout underarm areas and lower back of the bodysuit. These are both fixable with a little TLC, or you could simply replace the bodysuit with a new one, wear with a slip, or choose another form of undergarment to pair with the other pieces.
Aside from the small condition issues on the bodysuit, this set is in very good vintage condition. There are no holes, missing sequins, or odors, and it was stored in a smoke-free environment. This number would be a gorgeous choice for a wedding, photo shoot, festival, or dance performance!
