About

This is a beautiful vintage burgundy 1960s cocktail dress with Gold metallic details from designer Adele Simpson. This dress was purchased in the 1960's at Garfinkel’s in Washington, D.C. The dress falls is lined, has long sleeves, and a back 21” metal zipper. There are 4 pleats in front, and a V neck trimmed in beautiful burgundy satin. This dress is in excellent condition with the small exception of one small pulled thread found. Adele Simpson was a very talented mid century designer and her vintage dresses are well loved by collectors. I would estimate this dress to be a modern day size 4/6, but please use the measurements as a guide.

WIDTH of shoulders from seam to seam across back: 15"
