Early 1950s Buttoned Up Black Dress
Original Early 50s Stunning Black Dress
With its collar and high neckline, ¾ sleeves and calf length. It sounds a little matronly. But this dress is anything but. Beautifully tailored style, it reminds me of early Dior. Made by Taller Modes
The fabric is matte rayon with a silky tassel edged tie coming from the neckline.
Fitted bodice and waist right to the top of the hips. The skirt flares out from under the cute button detail on the hips. Back metal zipper. Longer calf length skirt. As the name indicates it’s probably more for the taller lady.
Excellent condition with 2 tiny pin holes. I’m undecided if they are actual pinholes or moth holes. Please see the photo. They are on one side of the bust which makes me lean towards pin holes. Not noticeable on wearing.
