The pleated section at the hem of this early 1960s black crepe cocktail dress shows the influence of the 1920s “flapper” look on clothing dating from this portion of the decade. The dress is actually fairly fitted at the bust, waist and hips, but the pleated hem--outlined with ribbon trim at the top and bottom--suggests the dropped waist popular in the earlier era.  A black satin rosette trims the left side of the pleated hem.  The dress has a scooped neckline, is unlined (but has taffeta facing in the bodice) and closes with a metal zipper in back.  It is in excellent condition and the only possible issue with the dress is that the satin ribbon trim, which is now bronze in color, may once have been black.  Add t-strap shoes and a long string of pearls for a 1960s-does-flapper look or just pumps and some great, sparkly earrings for a classic cocktail style.
