1950s Silk Chiffon & Sequin Party Dress

I love this little sequined top fifties halter dress! It is a great combination of luxe silk chiffon paired with a bit of glitz. The bodice is cut in a simple scooped halter with tiny, feminine straps. The entire bodice is covered with glossy black sequins so it glints and flashes in the light! The skirt of very full and I have put a light crinoline under it so you can see how full it will go (extra crinoline not included). Without the crinoline it falls straight with lots of swing. Its simple, classic and well made. Excellent condition!

Bust: 19" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13.75" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: free
Bodice length: 17" from shoulder seam to waist seam, including 4" band at waist
Skirt length: 27" from waist seam to hem

The dress is fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. There are two sequin flowers along one side of the hem - I am sure these were added later but they are so cute I left them - a darling little touch! No sequin loss on the bodice.
