An absolutely gorgeous original 1950’s party/prom dress in a wonderful combination of orchid ruched chiffon and tiered white lace ! The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering – narrow form fitting bodice, designed to enhance the bust and accentuate a tiny waist – with a twirling full skirt. There are three layers to the skirt – a shell pink satin underlayer, a middle single layer of lavender tulle to give the skirt extra body, topped with a floating overlayer of tiered ivory lace, backed by tulle. No maker’s label remains but this dress appears professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is a synthetic, likely nylon blend.
Note the special details on this lovely dress – bust enhancing tiered lace bodice with sweetheart neckline, cinched chiffon cummerbund to accentuate a tiny waist, and especially the twirling full layered skirt. The dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.
The dress closes down the centre back with a hidden metal zipper. The entire dress is lined in pink satin acetate.
No vintage size label, so please see measurements below for proper fit. This is an extra small size which would best fit a modern size 0 or 2.
Bust – 33-34”
Hips – full
Length – 52”
Torso length (strapless) – 10.5”
Skirt length (waist to hem) – 41.5”
This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No stains on the chiffon or lace and underarms are clean. I found no tears on the lace, although with this volume of fabric, it is possible I missed an inconspicuous break. The only minor flaw to note is a small inconspicuous repair to one of the skirt lace panels.
