This is a super quality vintage 1950s party dress. The label is no longer there, but this is obviously a high-end dress, beautifully pieced together and fully lined with pellon stiffener (see photo of lining). The dress is sleeveless, with what some might call a sweetheart neckline, and narrow shoulder straps. It has a form fitting bodice with a full cut skirt. The skirt of the dress is posed with a crinoline to create a full 50s look, but no crinoline is supplied. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper. The exterior is made of a basketweave type cotton.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a small to medium size, so please rely on the following measurements for fit keeping in mind the style of the dress and the tiny waist:
Bust: 34”-35”, around, taken under the arms
Waist: 25”, around
Overall length: 39 1/2”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition - the lining is a little creased, but this is normal for pellon. Otherwise, clean and wonderful. Please note that pellon can only be cleaned by a professional as it normally disintegrates with normal dry cleaning.
Super quality piece - beautifully structured!
