This stunning and elegant vintage evening gown is made up of a halter-style bodice, in pure black silk chiffon, which is boned and closes at the left side with a zipper. The bodice of the vintage dress is shaped with many pleats of chiffon and emphasizes the bust. The skirt is a full circle of pleated chiffon. The whole thing is lined in black taffeta. The label is Lee Claire. Would make an amazing photo to swirl- or dance in!

CONDITION: Excellent with a couple of small marks on the chiffon within the folds of the skirt- these are not noticeable.
Some info on the label:Lee Claire was a dress company that specialized in better cocktail, dinner, and evening dresses. It was started, probably in the late 1920s, by Irving Glaser. In the 1960s, the “Tux-Mate” label was started by Lee Claire. It was geared toward a younger customer and was cut in junior sizing.
