1950s Ceil Chapman Vintage Orange Black Dot Tulle Satin Dress Elegant Halloween


This vintage dress was designed by Ceil Chapman in the 1950's. The strapless dress is orange satin with a black polka dot tulle overlay. The dress has a side metal zipper. The dress has been shortened and there are tears to the tulle, as shown in the photos, underneath both arms that would need to be repaired, and those issues are reflected in the price.. I would estimate the dress to be a modern day size 4 but please review the measurements to assure a good fit! BUST: 34" WAIST: 24" LENGTH from under arm to waist: 9" LENGTH from waist to end of satin: 31" LENGTH from waist to end of tulle: 33"
