Additional Info

Late 1940s or early 1950s red tulle evening dress with dull gold sequined and beaded dragonfly appliques on the bodice and skirt.  It has a sweetheart bodice with boning, and gathered tulle straps.  The wide waistband is gathered tulle as well.  The skirt is full.  The dress is fully lined in taffeta.  It has a side zipper and hook and eye closure.

In really good condition, with no holes.  There are a few faint, small (1/4" and smaller) dark spots on the tulle skirt.  They were hard to capture in a photograph.

Designed by Fred Perlberg.  This label is a 40s label, according the Label Resource on the Vintage Fashion Guild's website, but the dress is more of a 1950s style.  The skirt is a little longer than other 50s ones, so it's probably on the cusp, around 1950 or 51.

Armpit to armpit: 16"
Bodice length: 16.5" with straps, 10" for the sweetheart lining and no straps
Overall length: 52.5" with straps
