Very stylish little black rayon dress with contrasting white snow leopard print cuffs and collar. Bodice has a fitted underbust with small gathers for fullness and a deep v-neck. 3/4 sleeve with padded shoulders and big turn up cuffs. Waist is fitted and has belt loops but sadly no belt, but you could easily wear this with a plain black belt. Four-paneled a-line skirt cut on the bias. Side metal zipper fastener. Label is Bickler. I'm a little bit conflicted as to the date of this, the black rayon and the cut of the dress screams 1940s, but the label to the neck looks more like 50s era to me.
The dress is labeled a size 40/38 but fits approx like a S-M. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to underbust: 10.5"
Shoulder to waist: 15"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 14.5"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 10.5"
Good condition, structurally sound and presents very well, but has some slight signs of wear, please see photos:
-There are some small signs of pulling/wear to the front of the upper sleeves, see photo.
-Some faint yellowing along the leopard print collar, see photo.
-The colour of the black rayon is a little bit uneven, it has some faint streaks of reddish fade, mainly to the front of the skirt. I've tried to show this in the last photo, but really it is very faint, so barely shows in the photos. It might show slightly in bright day light, but is too slight to be noticeable when worn indoors or in the evening.
All in all still presents very nicely and wears beautifully. Priced accordingly.
