A twirl of taffeta, the caress of silk velvet, and the evening begins. Vintage 1950s silk velvet and taffeta 2-piece dress set. Stunning slim fitting velvet bodice with modified sweetheart neckline, gathered cap sleeves, and side metal zipper. The top is darted, has princess seams and is designed to flare out slightly below the waist. Slight padding in the cap sleeves so they keep their shape. Side metal zipper. Multiple sewn panels of black taffeta with 5 velvet rings form a bouffant skirt with a built in black net crinoline, fitted waistline, side metal zipper with button closure. A large black velvet bow adorns the side of the skirt. Dreaminess magnified.
