New Look Gold Floral Lampshade Party Dress, 1950s

About

From the estate of a mid-century opera singer comes this New Look party dress, which looks like it might have stepped out of a Henry Clarke fashion shoot. High fashion touches like bust gathers and a deeply pleated Poiret-style lampshade peplum skirt are complemented by thoughtful details like attached tulle panniers, so no extra undergarments are required to achieve a frothy full peplum. Sweetheart bodice party dress with short raglan sleeves and inverted gathers under bust. Full circumference lampshade-style peplum with 24 one-inch deep pleats around waist; belt loops and matching covered belt. Rear metal zipper closure with hook and eye at upper- and mid-back, plus snap at derrière. Interior hanging loops; fully lined in ivory acetate plus tulle panniers beneath peplum at each hip. fabric: metallic-shot silk, acetate, tulle noteworthy: dry clean only repairs: none condition: excellent measurements: neckline opening: 12” across neckline drop: 6” from shoulder sleeve length: 1 ½” from underarm, 4 ½” from neck opening to sleeve edge sleeve circumference: 14” bust: 39” waist: 26” hips: 40” bodice length: 7” from underarm, 14” from shoulder skirt length: 27 ½” total length: 34 ½” from underarm, 41 ½” from shoulder sweep: 40” (skirt), 84” (peplum) hem: 1 ½” belt: 31 ½” long x ¾” wide (adjustable from 25 ½” – 27 ½”0 label: Jay Original, Mel Warshaw Inc.
