The pearls and bling on this vintage designer Ceil Chapman dress are stunning. With a fitted boned bodice, full skirt and drape plus attached faux train off the back, a most beautiful and quintessential 50's party dress. Not without her issues, she is still stunning in every way.
Condition: Yellowing from the bottom up. Discoloration and spot on the drape (beautiful beading underneath the drape, if you choose to remove it). Very minor bead loss and threads need tightening. Priced for condition. Still an amazing dress.
This dress is not eligible for return due to the beadwork. Please do not hesitate to ask questions before ordering.
Waist 24" (idea for enlarging: you could use fabric from the discolored 'swag' drape to add a panel in the back)
Length 43" when measuring from the top of the bust to the hem
I couldn't get the dress passed the shoulders on my mannequin so photographed it hanging. To avoid tugging on the dress, I barely even tried to get it on the mannequin, I hope these photos give you the 'picture'.
