Vintage 40s 50s Dress In Black Velvet And Silk Taffeta With Rhinestone Hip Sash And Dropped Waist S

Handmade late 40s Evening Cocktail Party Dress with a black velvet bodice featuring darting over the left hip to give the waist line a slightly asymmetrical look. The neckline is a modest V-neck, and the right hip has two tails of velvet covered in crystal rhinestones which throw rainbows! The skirt s made of silk taffeta, and is cut in a full circle, so when you spin the skirt flies up and just makes twirling waves of fabric all around you! I have more twirling pictures If you would like to see what I mean :)
The dress zips up the side with its original metal zipper, which is working just fine. The dress s in excellent condition, no rips, stains or smells.
