1950s Silk Button Suzy Perette Wiggle

I think this might be my favorite wiggle dress listed on the site right now. It is a masterpiece and tribute to what a really well made dress should look like and how it should be constructed. The entire shape has been created through the careful placement & cut of the vertical seams though the body of the dress. The waist is created by wide panels of fabric, mixed with seaming at the front and the back - all curving in to make that wonderful hourglass shape. The front has a row of fabric covered buttons all the way from the base of the V neck-line to the hem. A flat edge sits beside this row of buttons so you have the illusion of being able to completely unbutton it - so sexy! The collar is wide and flat with a fantastic flat fabric detail and a mile long flat ribbon tie sit at the neck for a bit of naughty secretary feel. The fabric is a light silk crepe in jet black. I can't go one enough about this piece - it really is extraordinary and I know I will regret listing it once it goes - the pictures do not come close to doing it justice. Immaculate condition.
