"Forever Young by Puritan" black dress... sorry it's so hard to show the detail on these pictures! I'm not sure what the fabric is on this, rayon or blend probably, pure black with a great drape. Surplice bust, and a beautiful half-moon gather at the left side (I lightened pics 4-6 to better show the seamwork). Unpainted side metal zip closure. The belt is included, but it's not the original, it's a modern replacement. Cuffed cropped sleeves. This is in overall excellent condition for it's age, the zipper is a little 'wavy', but you can't tell when you're wearing it. Also, I see a couple of spots that the fabric is a little 'shiny' like maybe from ironing? See picture 8, I turned the left neckline at an angle to help show it. Again, doesn't detract, it's just me trying really hard to find flaws. :) There is a tiny hole on the front of the right shoulder (picture 9). Probably originally had shoulder pads, but does not currently have shoulder pads. Truly lovely dress, so classic! I am a size 4 US, and this fits me well. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have that fits well.
