Sapphire/cobalt blue cocktail dress from the 50s era has an enchanting Grecian vibe with it's draped back neckline and jewel accented floating panel. Eyecatching and elegant, perfect for a wedding or semi formal social event.

Thanks to some fellow members of the Vintage Fashion Guild, I discovered Filcol was a company owned by Andrew Cole, and they specialized in cocktail and party dresses. They even provided dresses for the Orange Bowl Queens back in the 50s!

According to a newpaper article his 1953 collection was full of dresses with floating panels. So it's safe to say this dress was probably from that period.

DETAILS
•Silk jersey fabric has a lovely drape.
•Fitted bodice with bateau neckline front, vertical ruching at seams with gathered panels attached that become the draped back neckline.
•Floating panel at back left shoulder is anchored by a sparkly prong set rhinestone brooch.
•Flared skirt has pleating around the waist seam, except in very front. Skirt sweep is 120" So there will definitely be a nice twirl when dancing!
•Original belt included.
•Fully lined in matching taffeta. Skirt lining is separate from skirt.
•Side metal zipper closure.

MEASUREMENTS
Bust 36" Waist 28" Hips open
Shoulder to waist 16" Waist to hem 29"

FIT AND CARE
Because of the side zipper, your waist should be at least an inch smaller to make the dress easy to get into. Dry cleaning recommended.

CONDITION
Excellent. There are a few miniscule picks in the jersey. You'd really have to be looking closely to find them. Under some lighting conditions underarm areas look like they might be a shade off. It's very, very faint and my camera would not pick it up. So nothing that affects appearance or wearability. Mentioning to be thorough. The dress presents beautifully overall and looks like it has not be worn much at all.
