Stunning, and I do mean I was stunned, upon beholding this, Sheer White Chiffon with Scarlet Red Velvet Flocked Roses and Ruffles at Bodice and around Super Full Skirt. Very Chistian Dior New Look, 1954, with chiffon textured (flocked) with contrasting velvet!

Bodice has cap dolman (no shoulder seam) sleeves and a Peter Pan collar, and is flocked velvety roses, ribbons, and ruffles, in trompe l'oeil style, and closes with loops and 14 white chiffon covered shank buttons. Waist is high and ruched, pleats fall from below ruching, and waist to hips is white chiffon. Skirt bells out to be quite full, and remainder mirrors the top with roses and ruffles. Entire dress is lined in white taffeta. Metal zipper up side. Photographed without a crinoline, but would accommodate one or several nicely.


Rare larger size; usually these are XS or S; remember, this was the era of serious undergarments!

Szies are suggestions; lease check measurements.

Bust:: 38"
Waist: 30"
Hips: full/free
Length: 45"
Sleeve Hem to Sleeve Hem, Across back of dress: 44" (dolman sleeves, no seams)
Sweep of skirt: @ bottom: 90"

Condition: Very Good+ Vintage Condition. Appears to be unworn, no underarm wear at all. There are two small repaired portion of the chiffon outer layer (just the white), which one has to really look for, some of the shank buttons have some wear to the chiffon, otherwise, excellent.
This will need to be professionally cleaned. Even with my experience, I am afraid of the color bleeding. Priced for minor flaws and dry cleaning need.
