An absolutely exquisite original 1950’s strapless dress in an ethereal white chiffon organza decorated in glorious baby pink, primrose yellow and moss green floral embroidery. This would make a fabulous wedding gown – certainly lovely enough for a very special occasion. The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering – narrow boned bodice perfect to accentuate a narrow waist – with a twirling full skirt. No maker’s label remains but both a vintage size and union label confirm this dress was professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is a synthetic, likely nylon.
Note the special details on this wonderful dress – strapless (boned) chiffon bodice, lovely embroidered floral applique decorating both bodice and skirt, pink taffeta accent underneath the bust, adorable matching pink taffeta bows, and especially the full twirling skirt. There are three layers to the skirt – an ivory satin acetate lining, a middle single layer of white tulle to give the skirt extra body, topped with a layer of white chiffon. Note the dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included. There are also "barely there" white chiffon spaghetti straps attached, which could easily be tucked inside the bodice or removed entirely.
The dress closes down the centre back with a hidden vinyl (replacement) zipper and fastener. The entire dress is lined in ivory satin acetate.
Vintage size label indicates size 10, but please see measurements below for a proper fit. This is definitely not a modern size 10 ; it is an extra small size that would best fit a modern size 0 or 2.
Bust – 32-33”
Hips – full
Length – 36.75”
Torso length (strapless) – 10.75”
Skirt length (waist to hem) – 26”
This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No stains and the floral applique decoration is still in lovely condition, without any fading or discoloration. Underarms are clean. There are of course several of the small snags and picks typical of chiffon skirts of this age. Only one minor mention – a small worn spot/tear to the chiffon bodice on the neckline fold edge. This is relatively inconspicuous and only noted for accuracy.
