1950s Frank Usher London Vintage Dress in Fine Red Silk Chiffon Black Label


This is a simply sensational raspberry red vintage dress from designer Frank Usher of London! This is a rare early design of Usher's from the 1950's and it has the very rare black Frank Usher label, which was his first. The dress is made of rows of draped pleated silk chiffon and is lined with muslin and has built in "boning" and built in hoops for the wide skirt. This dress has exceptional details and closes with a zipper in the back. I would estimate that the dress fits a modern day size 4 but please use the measurements provided for the best fit. BUST: 34" WAIST: 24" HIPS: Free LENGTH from under arm to waist: 9" LENGTH from waist: 29"
