Who doesn’t love the soft rustle of silk taffeta fabric? Lovely to look at (and to listen to!), this black silk taffeta 1950s cocktail dress is a true vintage classic, with sparkling rhinestone buttons and elegant princess seaming. The gently fitted bodice features a round neckline trimmed with a cute little bow, and dolman-style, elbow-length sleeves with shirring to gather them above the elbows. The panels that make up the bodice become wider as they extend below the waist, to create the fullness of the skirt. The center back panel ends in a pointed seam, just below the natural waist—a nice detail—while the front panels extend all the way down to the hem. The dress is shown here with a crinoline underneath, which is not included—although we do have some for sale if you are interested. The dress bodice is unlined, but the skirt is lined with single layer of black tulle. In excellent condition, this full-skirted 1950s dress was nicely made, using quality materials, by R&K Originals.
