Beautiful mid-calf length crimson velvet cocktail dress has unpressed pleats falling from the hip, which has a fixed belt and button trim. Wide scooped neckline, and fitted bodice with the bust darted into the princess seams at front. Interesting side opening from underarm to hip to allow for the fitted style, closing with an open ended metal zipper to the hip, with a short opening below this closing with hook and eye and snap. Cotton velveteen. There are no tags, it's a custom made dress - early 1960s.

Length 112 cm (44")
Good. There are four scuffs on the velvet near the hem that look suspiciously like peg marks!! (I didn't do it!). Not noticeable when the dress is being worn.
