An enchanting original 1950’s party dress in a confection of baby pink tulle and lace. The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering - narrow bodice flaring at the waist. There are three layers to the fabric – a stiff muslin underskirt to give the skirt extra body, a baby pink satin lining, topped with a floating layer of baby pink lace backed by tulle. No maker’s label remains but this dress appears to have been professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is likely a synthetic blend.
Note the special details on this lovely dress – sweetheart neckline with petal shaped bust, flared lace shoulder straps, pleated tulle accent at bustline, and especially the fabulous twirling lace skirt with centre insert panel of accordion pleated tulle. Note the dress is photographed using an additional crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.
The dress closes down the rear with a hidden metal zipper and fasteners. The entire dress is lined in baby pink satin acetate.
No vintage size label, but please see measurements below for proper fit. This is a small size that would best fit a modern size 0 or 2.
