    Hello. I was hoping for some opinion as to the date of this dress. I can’t tell if it’s velvet or some kind of imitation. It’s rather long. It has a back metal zipper and two hooks. It also has what looks like side slits but they aren’t really slits. The seams are unfinished and not pinked. No tags or labels. Thanks for your help!

    It looks like its made of cotton velvet to me in the pics - 1950s cocktail dress, maybe 1952ish? worn with black suede 'baby doll' shoes and velvet cocktail hat, rhinestone earrings, and a fur wrap it would look chic!
