A vintage 1950s party dress in embroidered tulle over taffeta, with black velvet trim. This 50s tulle dress is embroidered with a beautiful stylized floral motif that reminds me a little of a thistle flower. Dress has a full, gathered skirt, and comes with a dotted tulle headscarf with grosgrain ribbon ties.
