Under the Tuscan Sun! This 1950's Apricot Silk Satin Asian Jacquard Shirtwaist Dress transported me to the final scene in that Movie where actress Diane Lane is wearing that divine shimmering, to-live-for, apricot dress! One of my favorite all time dresses in such an unusual, but oh so flattering color.

This celestial dress has the style popular in the late 50s, of a casual shirtwaist top with notched collar, V neck and bracelet length sleeves. The full sleeves are gathered into a 1 " cuff that snaps closed. The blowsy bodice closes with 2 bright apricot buttons and a hook and eye at the waist. The swirling full skirt is created with a flattering combination of wide and narrow pleats at the waistline, front and back, that allow for the fullness of the skirt without adding bulk to the hips. The inner seams are pinked, 50's style. (see condition remarks below)

The luminous golden apricot silk satin jacquard has an Asian floral medallion motif, that mirrors the fascination with the orient in all things from; clothing to jewelry to mid-century household items that carried over from the late 40's to the mid 50's. This radiant dress is a gorgeous bit of sunshine that will light up any occasion from garden party to wedding party, and maybe some good fortune in lighting up the heart, like it did for Diane Lane in Under the Tuscan Sun.
