*VINTAGE 1950s BLACK SILK COAT & METAL ZIPPER DRESS ENSEMBLE
A beautiful 1950s black what feels and looks like slubbed silk coat and metal zipper dress ensemble.
7/8 coat is fully lined in an off white or ivory taffeta-like fabric. Cute bow at the neck with a snap and hook and eye for closure. 3/4 length raglan sleeves on the coat. 2 pockets in the seams.
Matching dress is fully lined with a black silky fabric. Beautiful "V" neckline. Cap sleeves. Pleats which travel up from the waist to give fullness to the bust line. Matching original thin belt with thread loops. Metal zipper in back. Slimming princess seams on the back of the dress. Small kickpleat in back. Vintage pinked seams. Belt measures 31" from end to end. Belt is a bit stiff but not unusual in a vintage garment and it is extremely rare to ever find the original belt with a dress. Vintage International Ladies Garment Workers Union inside the dress.
By: No tag
Size: No size tag so go by the measurements for a good fit
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.
Bust: 44 all the way around - I wear a Size 10 and I could get it on although it was slightly tight across the back so it is for a smaller size.
Sleeve from neck: 22-1/4
Shoulder to shoulder: Cannot measure because of the raglan sleeves
Bust: 34 - 35 - It was hard to measure because the sleeves are cut like raglan sleeves so there is not a straight seam going up
Waist: 27 unstretched but leave room for movement
Hips: 35 maybe a bit more but leave room for movement so the gown hangs properly
Length: 39 - 40
Fabric: Feels and looks like slubbed silk. Coat has a taffeta like lining. Dress has a silky lining.
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - small separations in the seam under both arms on the dress - maybe 1/2" - 1"? Easy fix.

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.
