Fringe & net gown
Aggressive, jet-black glamour à la Lauren Bacall in To Have and Have Not. Skinny straps hold up the plunging neckline. Fringed illusion-net bust swings with your movements to flash glimpses of 'skin' (black netting tops a nude-toned rayon crepe). Long, long, long, slim-cut skirt --- draped at the waist, with front and back vents at the hem. Rare 'cloth-covered' metal zipper closes side. Rayon. Perfect for a slinky lounge singer… or some other sexy varmint.

bodice (shoulder-to-waist): 15 1/2"

condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. There are several issues in the dress which, although small and unnoticable, might render this dress more suitable for costume events or theatrical productions. Though most are hidden, the pictured flaw is not.
Noted issues in netting: two tiny rips near the neckline (hidden by fringe), one hole in the netting (last picture) at mid-back -- someone tried to hide this tiny hole with a little dot of black marker to the rayon.
Noted alteration: one side seam has been unstitched and resewn --- original stitch-holes are visible in the netting. To interior: nude lining is lightly-stained (hidden).
Noted repair: one thin 1/2" rip in the skirt (at center seam) has been repaired.
