This beautiful dress was made in the 1940's and is labelled 'Ellen Kaye Original'.
Made from inky black crepe - which has a small amount of stretch - it is the perfect piece for an evening out.
A close fitting bodice with full puff sleeves, there are big shoulder pads which help the sleeves keep their shape. The yoke is embellished with sequins in a floral design in pink and green.
This piece will fit up to a 34-26-36 but to ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 18"
Flat waist 13"
Flat hip 18"
Shoulders between sleeves 12"
Shoulder to waist 16.5"
Shoulder to hem 45.5"
Flat sleeve 5.5"
Good with some minor points to note;
- someone has added an additional 2" length to the skirt - it has been done well and appears to be a history addition to the dress
- there is minor colour loss to some of the sequins
- a few single thread plucks - 3 on the bodice front and 4 in the skirt
- the zip is a replacement but that is a good thing as someone has added a much longer zip that it would have originally had
