1950s Larger Wool Crepe Day Dress

This is one of those fantastic basic little black dresses that never go out of style and that you will pull out to wear over and over. It's a great size with a nice shape that is very flattering. I love that is still has it's original belt so you can cinch it in if needed or adjust for more room. The bodice is simple and sweet with a square neckline and nice seaming details. The skirt flares out reminiscent of a 40s swing piece and I absolutely love the slant pockets that are cut to sit out form the skirt a bit and further emphasized by top stitching. Wonderful condition.
