SILK 1950's HALTER DRESS 50's party prom aqua S (B3)
Sorry for the annoying shadows in the bottom left on some of the pictures... I dropped my camera a couple of weeks ago and have a crack in the lens now. :( Beautiful handmade 1950's halter dress! Comes directly from the original owner, whose mother made it for her. Silk shantung, with an artfully seamed top edge. Halter closes with snaps at the back of the neck, and a back metal zip. The bodice has light boning for shaping. Also includes the original volumizer slip (picture 10). This is being priced/sold as-is, since there is a bit of a condition issue on the back, where the fabric has some splitting (picture 8)... Will take a bit of creative reinforcement (maybe addicting a cummerbund or 'faux belt' appliqué type accent over it??) to sturdy it up there. You could actually hem this shorter, and use the extra fabric to reinforce the split area. There have been some repairs already done on the back waist and darts (picture 7). I also found some spots near the front hem (picture 9) that did not come out, even though I did just have this dry-cleaned. They are about 5.5" up from the hem, so if you plan to hem this, it would disappear. Because of their location and the volume of the fabric, they aren't too noticeable anyway as-is. Fits me well as a S, please compare the measurements below with a dress you have at home that fits well.
