1950s Black Silk Organza Fitted Dress

This dress is no longer perfect but still pretty and fabulous. It is an absolute bombshell of a dress and it will give any girl who wears it instant curves. It is made of a black silk organza that is draped and formed around the body to create and emphasize your curves. I love the faux wrap style skirting and how it is detailed at the waist with a bow.  The bodice crosses and has hand stitched pleated detailing. Rhinestone detailed straps curve up and over each shoulder. Present well on but please review the condition notes below.

The dress is fully lined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The fabric shows slight discoloration here and there and there is a samll amount of fading under the arms along the edges Please review photos. It still has tond of life and is too pretty not to go to a good home
