Boucle necklet dress
Winterberry-red dress with sparkling neck --- by Jr. Flair. Dimensional wool textile has diagonal rows of looped chain-stitching, sprinkled with pale mohair or angora hairs. Jewel neck is accented with a glinting starburst pattern --- 34 lines of rhinestones and copper-red metal beads.
In the New Look mold: fitted bodice (12 seams shape the waist), a gored, extra-full skirt, and dolman sleeves. The dress is cut on the bias and has bracelet-length sleeves and small shoulder pads.
size & fit- small
sleeve-length: 15 1/2"
shoulder-to-hem: 43 1/2"
width at hem: 110'"
condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted minor issue: all rhinestones and metal beads are intact, but paint has worn off the diamond-cut beads -- they look metallic (original color was goldish-red.) Touch up the beads with paint/polish or leave them silvery.
** Vintage items are precious, pre-owned pieces of history. Many have unique dyes and handcrafted prints, artisan weaves and intricate hand-tailoring -- details no longer available except in modern couture. Please love & respect your vintage.
