1950s Black Suzy Perett Taffeta Dress
Show-stopping, 1950s Suzy Perett taffeta cocktail dress. Dramatic pinched waistline and fitted high-hip with a voluminous skirt. The dress is adorned in rows of tiny ball tassels and comes with tulle stitched into the skirt lining. A definite shop favorite! This dress is magic.
Note: this dress is an XS but can absolutely be tailored. The torso has 8 darts going all the way around the dress (not including seamlines) and .5” of seam allowance on each, meaning that a tailor could definitely let the waist out by a few inches and still maintain the integrity of the dress.
