Darling example of party, prom, formal gown from the late 50s, this one piece dress is a puff of glamour. Size is medium, bust 34.
The one piece dress is strapless, has sweetheart bodice line that is very fitted. Boning was added to the bodice to keep it's shape.
The waist is fitted and ever so slightly dropped in a repeat of the sweet heart line. Self fabric piping was added where the bodice is joined to the skirt to accent this point.
The skirt is gathered and very full. My photographs were taken with a single, spare can can underskirt. Add more and this skirt could REALLY puff out.
The fabric is CRISP taffeta and holds the gathering beautifully! The colors are: Dove gray, so soft yellow and so soft peach with a metallic thread accent for some extra party sparkle.
This is a size medium: with actual measurements being: bust 34, waist 28, hip up to 50 (best for 36 or 38 hip) length from under arm to hem is 42, length from waist to hem is 36 so it is meant to hit at mid calf, Ballerina length.
Home tailored by a very, very good seamstress and a favorite, as it was worn on more than one occasion. There is some stress to a few seams that re-enforcement would take care off. There is one light spot, pictured. It is a small spot and, could easily be removed with hand spotting at the dry cleaners.
Perfectly DARLING for a party or dress up affair and priced very reasonable for the slight imperfections. After you wear it a few times you could make a ton of fancy doll dresses or a little girls party out fit. There are yards of wonderful fabric.
but.... this dress is very, very wearable.
