Elegant classic bombshell, cocktail party Nat Kaplan 50s 60s vintage dress!

Gorgeous beaded illusion bodice, flared skirt, metal zipper. Fabric feels like silk or silk rayon blend.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition. No obvious issues. I found a faint discoloration outline on the skirt and a tiny darker mark nearby. They are hardly visible at close inspection and are virtually invisible when the dress is on. It looks like the hem was redone by machine, and would need a good pressing to stay flat. Do not miss out!

Bust(approx.): 34 (the slip underneath)
Waist :26
Hips: free
Length: shoulder to hem 41, shoulder to natural waist 17

(measured flat, waist is snug, bust approximated, leave room according to your preferences, all in inches)

Accessories are not included.
