Deeply wonderful vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ by Lee Claire New York -- early American high end designer label
✧ white, blue, + purple floral print cotton with a sheer pale blue organza overlay
✧ origami pleated petal bust
✧ crisp pleats across the bust + down the hip
✧ nipped in waist + full hips at the skirt
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper

This dress is utterly breathtaking -- with the sheer organza overlay, it makes me think of catching butterflies in a net in a garden full of flowers. There really is something very poetic about this piece’s construction, something that gives the impression of flowers pressed beneath glass or a garden seen through a veil; I have never seen anything quite like it! Perfect to wear to a wedding, for taking tea in the garden, for fancy cocktail parties, or for any other especially special event. A dreamy dress for a dreamy girl!

This beautiful dress was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or visible mends. There is one tiny incredibly faint lighter spot on the bust that is not at all noticeable unless looked for. One very small area of pulling/running in the organza overlay in the back of the dress toward the bottom of the skirt that is not at all eyecatching (shown in the fourth photo.) Just wonderful!! This dress has been freshly drycleaned and is ready to wear!
