A beautiful color combination in this vintage 1950s light gray and ivory flocked tiered formal prom dress with metal zipper.  My photos do not do this vintage dress justice as it was very difficult to show the exact shades of the dress in the photos.

Sweetheart neckline with 4 sheer ruffles underneath and around the top of the strapless gown.  Ruched ivory taffeta ivory cummerbund although it looks grayish in the photos, it is ivory with a bow in the back of the dress.  The ivory cummerbund and bow match the flocking which is the same color.  There are four tiers to the dress.  Scalloped tiers at the hemline on all the flocked fabric tiers.

Stays in the lining on the sides and on the bodice inside to keep the dress up and smooth looking.  There are long ivory straps inside the dress which are pinned on both sides so the dress can be hung up on a hanger.  I think the previous actually cut the original straps off the dress as she wanted it strapless and used the straps to hang the dress up instead.  Vintage Ladies' International Garment Workers Union tag inside.

The tiers in the skirt are full and project out from the skirt as there are two net crinolines for a lot of fullness.  Under the netting, there is a taffeta slip so the net crinolines do not scratch one's leg.  Completely lined.  The fullness in this dress is wonderful!

Perfect for a '50s party, prom or a dance.

By: No tag
Size: No tag but a very small size so go by the measurements because sizing has changed over the years.  My model is a size 6 and I could not get the dress zipped up past the waist.  This dress is for a VERY SMALL PERSON.

Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure.  You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.

Measurements of my model:  Your measurements must be several inches smaller than the measurements below BECAUSE I COULD NOT COMPLETELY ZIP IT UP THE BACK AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS:
Bust: 34.2"   Waist: 25.2"    Hips: 35.7"

Appx. Measurements of the dress
Bust:  31 
Waist:  24
Length:  34-1/2
Care: No tag but dry clean
Fabric: No tag but satiny taffeta, flocked fabric, netting
Condition:  Very good - There is rip in the one of the crinolines 1-1/2" X 4" but it cannot be seen when wearing the dress with all that fabric and does not affect the beauty of the dress in any way.

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.

Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.

Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.

The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.  In that case, we do allow one exchange or a store credit on any item that you want. There are about 2,000 items in the store and more are being added all the time so you have a large selection to choose from.

You must email before returning an item so I can give you the information that you need to exchange the item.
