Drop dead darling vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ two layers of buttercup yellow tulle over silky yellow acetate lining
✧ second layer of tulle is completely covered in ruffles
✧ fabric daisies + green silk vines with green rhinestones circle the skirt
✧ ruched satin acetate cummerbund with large bow in back
✧ boned bodice for shape + support
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper + snaps beneath the bow -- please note that the zipper does work, but the dress was too small on our dress form to zip it up all the way

This dress is an absolute masterpiece of girlie wonder! You will feel just like a 1950s fairy princess everytime you slip it on, whether you are spinning about a marble ballroom floor or simply about your own bedroom. It would be gorgeous to wear for a prom, as an unconventional wedding dress, as part of a wedding party, or for any other especially special and especially wondrous event. A deeply gorgeous, incredibly sweet 50s frock!!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!


please note: this dress was too small to properly fit our dress form, but the zipper DOES work!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is some extremely, extremely faint darkening in the back just at the top left side, and a bit on the right side of the bow, which really is not at all eye catching. Please note that these issues did not show up very well in the photos, but do need to be looked for in person as is. Some general mild wear to the daisies. This dress has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
