Vintage Little Black Cocktail Dress Adele Simpson Silk Bow

About

I love this vintage little black dress! This sensational black silk sleeveless dress was designed by Adele Simpson and purchased at the exclusive boutique Nicholas Ungar in the late 1950’s. I love the bow on the bodice and the sash that drapes from the bow and snaps together in the back. The dress is lined and closes in the back with a metal zipper and two hooks and eyes. This is another piece from my favorite estate of all time - a collector’s dream and one I will never find again! Her clothing was all in near mint to unworn condition and the designer names included every important fashion designer from the 1940’s through the 1970’s. Most of her dresses were a size 6 or 8 but this one is an estimated size 10/12. Please use the measurements as a guide for a better fit. BUST: 40” WAIST: 30” HIPS: 44” ARM circumference: 16.5” LENGTH from top of shoulder to waist: 16” LENGTH from waist: 26”
