1980s Dotted Victor Costa Wiggle Dress

This is a fantastic take on a classic 1940s wiggle dress with lots of bombshell curves built into it! The fabric is a navy rayon with a classic white dot print. I love the illusion of a proper wrapped and draped hip swag at one hip - nothing creates a vixen like silhouette then those curved lines! The waist nips in and it came with the cutest little white patent bow belt. The top has a draped, almost cowled front detailing that again adds to the curved appeal. Very cute and easy to wear. Excellent condition.

Bust: 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 23" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 17" from top of bust to waist
Skirt: 27" from waist to hem

Fully lined in a blue silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The belt is original to the dress and in great shape as well.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML
