80s Draped Cocktail Dress Fuschia Pink Jacquard 1940s Style$52.50
DETAILS: This 1980s vintage cocktail dress pays homage to the flattering styles of the 1940s while adding that 80s exuberance as well as easy wear and care details. The bodice is styled with a softly rolled collar, cap sleeves, and medium-size shoulder pads. Turn around, and there's a sexy little triangle of skin seen. The waist is elasticized for a custom fit. What looks like a softly pleated draped skirt is actually a straight skirt with "swag" panels that meet in the center of both front and back.
SIZE: Labeled 7/8
Bust 38" (96. 5 cm)
Waist 23-28" (58. 5-71 cm)
Hips 40" (101. 5 cm)
Bodice length 17" (43 cm)
Skirt length 26. 5" (67. 25 cm)

FABRIC/COLORS: The fabric is a lightweight brocade/jacquard in a vibrant raspberry pink-to-almost-red. The woven pattern is of varying size ovals against a lightly textured background, almost like a matelasse. Tag says it's 100% polyester and can be machine washed.
TAGS: Pellini After 5, by Von Bramlett
CLOSURES: The roll collar closes with two small self-fabric buttons & loops at the back of the neck. The rest of the dress closes with a long nylon zipper center back. The dress has thread loops for a sash belt which has disappeared. I have shown the dress in some photos with a belt from my own closet for inspiration - it is not included with purchase.
CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears or other issues were noted.
