Absolutely GORGEOUS black velvet 1940's dress! I'm not exactly sure of the fabric content, there are no tags in this. Feels like rayon, but looks like silk on the inside. Excellent quality. Has an additional layer across the front, which is gathered up on the hip for a pretty little drape. Side zip closure. There is a matching fabric belt, but pretty much all of the original rhinestones are missing from the buckle (picture 8). Picture 9 shows what the waist looks like without the belt. Still presents well from a distance, has an 'antique' appeal to it. I had originally purchased this for myself, but I wear a S, and this is more like a M. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have at home that fits well. Overall GREAT condition for a 75-year old! I see a couple of spots where the previous owner did a couple of small repairs, a few stitches on the top of the zipper placket, and the sleeve hems look like they might have been let out to lengthen. Also, as I held this up to bright lights, I saw the slightest fading on the left side near the hem (picture 10)... Presents beautifully despite that, because you really can't see it in normal wearing, it's barely-there, and just looks like the velvet is catching the light. ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENTS (no stretch) Bust: 38" Waist: 30.5" Hip: 43" Length: 45.5" Check out my other listings, I love to combine shipping! I cannot mark international packages as 'gift', as that is customs fraud. Dreaming of more than one item in our shop? We understand!
