Vintage 50's party formal in lovely blue lace.
We don't usually go for such sweetness but the color on this dress is captivating, like a fairy tale.
Fitted waist with satin piping accents that look much like a corset.
Full skirt with a 120" sweep.
Skirt has an amazing 4 layers:
A lace layer that is a beautiful light to medium blue in color. Next, is a blue tulle under-layer followed by taffeta in an almost iridescent shade of pale lavender, lastly a stiff white under slip.
The bodice is lined in taffeta.
The pale lavender under-layer truly boosts the color of the blue lace under certain light.
Lovely and very unique.
Skirt also has satin piping
The dress was made to be a couple of inches shorter at the back than in the front.
Would be fairy tale sweet with a ruffled slip peeking out.
Dress is shown with an extra crinoline. Crinoline not included in sale.

Measurements are taken flat and then doubled where applicable.
Measurements are of the garment not the body that goes in it.
Dress is vintage size marked 10.
