1950s cocktail dress by Ceil Chapman. Wide, slightly off-shoulder neckline. 3/4 length sleeves with notched turn back cuffs. Darting and pleats across bodice. Fitted silhouette with wiggle skirt. Pleats at front skirt and darts at back. Bodice and skirt fully lined in silk. Boning at inside bodice on side seams. Center back concealed zipper closure.
Very good vintage condition. Subtle discoloration at shoulders, upper sleeves, either side of skirt, and around hem - likely caused by sun. Lining shows signs of discoloration from perspiration. It has become visible to the outside of only one underarm.
Bust: 32" - 35"
Sleeve Length: 14"
