Elegant Henry Lee Beaded Vintage 50s Cocktail Dress -
Lovely and elegant this black dress has just the right amount of pizazz to make it the perfect cocktailing affair. It's jet black and made of rayon crepe. The bodice is slightly blouson and covered in small black seed beads that are applied in a squiggly pattern. The short sleeves are chic and make it idea for wearing with a wrap or fur. The skirt has gentle pleating at the waistline (really, just a few very small tucks) and the skirt is slim and flattering.
The dress is made by Henry Less. It's a hard to find larger size that zips in the back with a long metal zipper. The dress is fully lined.
Very good to excellent. Being picky--there's just a touch of ironing shine on one of the front pleats/tucks. One pick in the crepe in the back (tiny) and just minor bead loss (2-3 beads) on on section.
