Gorgeous black 1950's B. Altman silk cocktail with ruched jersey along the bodice. The fabric is a tight weave, holds it's shape, looks like a pique. The bodice has a unique cut with these protruding pieces that are tailored around the arms and come to points just above the bust. The sleeves are cap length and made of the ruched fabric. The draped jersey on the front bodice is mimicked on the back. The dress itself is fitted in the bust, waist and hip with a straight pencil skirt and tucks along the side waist to give the hip some shape. Metal zipper up the back, dress is unlined with the exception of a partial muslin lining on the skirt. Label reads, "B. Altman & Co., Fifth Avenue, New York."

Condition: Excellent. Cannot find any flaws, looks hardly worn, the fabric is crisp and dress is ready to wear.
