Details: True vintage in excellent to very good condition, professionally restored. Sold originally by Seattle prestigious vintage department store Frederick & Nelson (fabric tags sewn into inner seam), this incredibly elegant dress features sculpted, meticulously crafted, body hugging shape front & back while still being feminine & classy.
Front upper bodice is shaped with unusual darting vertically & at bust, with added flourish of a shaped fabric rose at the front curved waist, which breaks into perfect gathers of a voluminous full skirt. Dramatic back with a built in crinoline that attaches with a hook & eye, lending a subtle train look. Slender sleeves are darted at elbows, close with 3 small metal snaps. Perfect for a wedding dress, or any other special occasion. We had the zipper professionally replaced. It does evince minor all over wear probably from lying flat in storage for 50+ years, more to sleeves. 2 snags to back of skirt, barely noticeable. Clean & ready to wear.
