The bright red cotton velveteen fabric of this slightly off-the-shoulder 1950s cocktail dress is embroidered all over with black leaf and flower designs. An attached, wide black taffeta sash cinches the waist, with shirring gathering it at each side seam. The lovely neckline has black elastic hidden under the top of the cap sleeves, to help keep it resting just off the edge of the shoulders. The narrow, straight skirt has small pleats where it meets the waist seam in front (mostly hidden under the taffeta sash), adding a bit of fullness the hip area. It has a kick pleat at its back hem. The bodice only is lined with orange red rayon taffeta. The dress fastens with am metal side seam zipper. This lipstick red and black embroidered 1950s dress is in excellent condition.
