Vintage 1950s floral chiffon garden party dress with ruched bust, corset-like bodice, dropped waist, and full floaty skirt features a dramatic floating panel that trails from the right back shoulder. A play of vibrance against rich, subtle hues, the print colors--saffron, olive, and sepia on a soft white ground—are enhanced on the front bust by a sprinkling of iridescent sequins.

The long torsoed bodice is shaped by vertical seams (five in front, five in back) which stop at the underbust seam, creating a modified shelf bust effect. The front center seam extends up through the bust, dividing the ruching, and single lines of shirring “anchor” the wide, ruched shoulder straps, with a block of 4 shirred lines anchoring the floating panel in back. The drop waist seam is piped with a self-fabric rouleau.

The dress closes with a side metal zipper from hip to underarm, and is lined in peach acetate satin (faced in the bodice and forming a fullness-boosting “petticoat” in the skirt). The chiffon outerlayer of the dress burn tests as nylon.

No labels of any kind. Measurements are: Bust 33”, underbust 28”, natural waist (measured halfway between underbust and dropped waist) 25”, dropped waist 31”, hips free, length shoulder to drop waist 19”, length shoulder to hem 45”.

Excellent condition, with no flaws to note.
