This very early vintage Adele Simpson dress has some of the most incredible details. The dress is black rayon crepe and has amber colored buttons up the front, a fabric belt and outstanding pleating. You can see how the pleats below the waist line are so unusual, and even the way the cuffs are pleated is unique. The buttons can be buttoned up much higher than I have shown, so that the pointed collar becomes high necked. This dress came from an outstanding estate I acquired that included vintage clothing from the most important designers of the 20th century. Unfortunately, the dress does have some fading in a couple of places but it is such a beautifully designed piece, and is otherwise in absolutely perfect condition and was most likely never worn. I estimate this dress to be a modern day size 6 but encourage you to use the measurements as a guide.
LENGTH from nape of neck to waist: 18”
Length from waist: 30”.
