Ceil Chapman 1950s Vintage Dress Lace 50s Party Full Skirt 1950s


This 1950's vintage dress is from Ceil Chapman and is crafted with exceptional detail including rows of black lace over netting that give a horizontal stripe effect. It has a side metal zipper and is fully lined with cream taffeta. The only flaw found is that the label needs a stitch on one of the edges. I have shown it with a crinoline slip to indicate the fullness, but it is lovely without one too! I would estimate this dress to be a modern day size 4/6, but please use the measurements for a guide to the best fit. Bust : 36" Waist: 26" Hips: Free Arms: 12" opening Sleeve: 6 and 1/2 inches from shoulder seam Length: 12.5" from center of back to waist Length: 16" from top of sleeve to waist Length: 27" from waist
