Gorgeous vintage 1950s 50s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ icy blue silk + silver metallic thread paisley damask
✧ tightly gathered scoop neckline falls into faux bolero pleats over the bust
✧ two dainty bows at the waistline
✧ figure hugging wiggle dress fit
✧ slit in back for ease of movement
✧ fastens up the back with a covered metal zipper

This dress is so glamorous and so classic -- it reminds me so much of something that Betty Draper would wear (she does love those icy blues!) The faux bolero bodice is such an exquisite detail, and the two little bows are absolutely darling. This dress would be perfect to wear to a wedding, to a fancy cocktail party, for a romantic dinner with your special mister, or for any other especially special event. A true Hollywood starlet of a dress!

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!!

Excellent vintage condition with no noticeable stains, tears, or mends. There is a bit of fraying on one of the bodice seams, a bit lower down on the back seam of the skirt, the faintest possible stain on the skirt (shown in the third section of the fourth photo), and some spots that are completely covered by the folds of the bolero; due to their placement and the shine of the metallic threads, none of these are at all eye catching, and the stain was only discovered under the harsh photo lights when intensely examining the dress. Just wonderful!!
