1950s Bouffant prom dress; lace, sequins, silver Lurex fabric in size extra small. Classic example of the 50s formal party dress. Extra small size. Measurements in inches: Bust 30, waist 22, hip free, length from underarm to hem is 46 inches.
One piece strapless gown is made with specialty fabrics. White lace net is dotted with silver sequins in the bust and skirt, as well as the plain net under skirt.
The waist and back of the bodice are made with a wonderful blue Lurex woven with glittering silver metallic thread.
The bust is made with layers of the lacy net. The waist is boned to keep a sharp waist line. The blue Lurex points up to a point between the breasts and down to a point at the center front.
The very full skirt is made in three layers. The lining is white acetate. The under skirt is white net dotted with sequins. This is shown in the pictures. The outer skirt is lace net also dotted with sequins. It is marvelous.
There is a side metal zipper that works perfectly as well as hook and eyes for complete closure.
The dress is very clean; free of odors or weak seams.
PLEASE Note: there is 1 tear at the side front near the hem. It is about 5 inches long. A few stitches will make it quite unnoticeable. This is shown in the last picture.
You could add a hoop skirt or full petticoat for more volume if you like.
With careful packing this will weigh more than 1 pound and so Priority Mail is the most economical choice for shipping. Part of the insurance is covered in this cost.
International rates vary.
I always combine shipping on multiple orders and refund any overcharges of postage a/o insurance.
