Vintage Black Rayon & Lace Cocktail Hobble Dress Wiggle Train 1950s 40-30-43
This lovely vintage cocktail dress has it all! Comprised of black rayon crepe, it has the loveliest black lace overlay on a sheer flesh tone tulle at the full, round neckline with the lace making cap sleeves.
I love how it hugs the curves and then has this loose "train" that falls form the shoulders and attaches at the hem. The hem is a hobble style, that is, tight at the knee and full at the hips.
It is lined in a strapless style in the bodice with a fleshtone taffeta; the skirt is lined in black. It has a full back zipper. Even the wide waistband has flair! This looks like something I have seen on the hit series " Pan Am".
Though there is no label, this is part of a great collection we procured from Finland.
