Black Velvet & Zebra Faux Fur Hostess Dress, C.1960

$395

About

From Fifth Avenue Robes, a glamorous black velvet and zebra faux fur hostess dress that exudes C.1960 style. Just imagine Doris Day greeting Rock Hudson at the door for a little stay-at-home dinner date and you've got the picture. The plush black velvet bodice zips and hooks at the back with a boat neck and elbow length bell sleeves. The black and white zebra striped skirt has soft pleating at the waist with side pockets and a comfy fur texture. Fun for home but also perfect for a little cocktail soiree especially at the holidays. CONDITION Good condition with a little wear to the velvet fabric at the front waist as shown in photograph 13 and under each arm as shown (under one arm) in photograph 14. These flaws do not affect the integrity of the fabric and appear to have been caused by friction from wear. They will probably go unnoticed but worth mentioning. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS The size is not marked though the dress best fits U.S. size 4 - 6 with attention to the following measurements. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4. A note on fit: I believe the bodice is designed to slightly blouson for comfort. Bust 35" Waist 26" Hips 44" Sleeve Length From Underarm to Cuff 8" Shoulder Length Taken Across Back From Sleeve Seam to Seam 16" Length From Shoulder to Hem 53.5" Length From Shoulder to Waist 15"
