An exquisite original 1950’s party dress in a combination of mouthwatering lemon lace and tulle. What a statement this gown would make at the approaching prom season ! The color is soft and romantic. The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering - perfect to accentuate a narrow waist. There are multiple layers to the skirt – a matching lemon satin lining, topped with a floating skirt of layered lemon tulle. There are six cascading tiers of tulle on this skirt, each overlapping the next. No maker’s label remains but this dress appears professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is likely a synthetic blend.
Note the special details on this striking dress – strapless wrapped lace (boned) bodice with sweetheart neckline and tulle trim accent at the bustline, and the fabulous twirling multi-layered tulle skirt. Note the dress is photographed using an additional crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included. Note also the corsage and ribbon are loosely stitched onto the bodice and could easily be detached.
The dress closes down the side with a hidden metal zipper. The entire dress is lined in matching lemon satin acetate.
No vintage size label, but please see measurements below for proper fit. This is a small size which would likely best fit a modern size 2 or 4.
Bust – 33-34”
Waist – 24-25” (possibly 26” with a tight squeeze)
Hips – full
Length – 41.5”
Torso length (strapless) – 10.5”
Skirt length (waist to hem) – 31”
This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No holes or stains and underarms are clean. The tulle is crisp and fresh with wonderful drape. Only one minor mention – a small tear on the tulle skirt at the left hip. This repair was professionally done with transparent thread and is relatively inconspicuous.
