BLACK VINTAGE DRESS carlye 1950's 1960's cotton day dress great detail! S (B8)
Black vintage 50's/60's day dress from Carlye, probably cotton or cotton-blend. Looks like a simple day dress, with concealed button placket to about the hip. But this dress actually has quite a bit of detail… see pictures 4 and 5 for close-ups of the detail! There are rows of teeny pintucks all over, and there is also open 'ladder stitch' as well. You can see through the ladder-stitch, so you'll need a slip with this one. 1/2 Dolman sleeve. The skirt is pretty much straight, this probably originally came with a belt, but there is not a belt included. The one seen in the pictures is one I borrowed from another dress. :) Fits like a S, no stretch to the fabric. 35" bust, 28" waist, and 39" hip. 42" long. There is NO fading, and this dress is very clean. A few of the mother-of-pearl buttons are getting rough around the edges, as is common over time for this type of button. The only real flaw I found is that there is a hole in the right armpit, at the seam, so it would be an easy fix to conceal. Right now it's just big enough for me to put my pinky finger in… please convo me for a close-up of the hole. Check out my other listings, I love to combine shipping!
