1950s Pink Party Dress, Chiffon Prom Gown or Wedding dress in a Size Petite

Here is a beautiful full skirted pink nylon chiffon, long 1950s party dress perfect for prom or even a wedding. This is in a very, very small, petite size most likely because it was made for a teen to wear to her senior prom. The color is a vibrant bright lipstick pink with a full circle of voluminous fabric at the skirt and a hemline flounce, or ruffle, as well as a scalloping swag of fabric dotted with firm silk roses. The bodice is boned and fitted with fabric ruching and a sheer gathered piece of fabric that serves as shoulder straps. This piece could be removed for a strapless look or adjusted to form a halter style if it is too short to wear as it is. The strap was too short and the dress too small to zip onto my mannequin, so clearly is was made for a younger girl, but if you are petite, you may be able to wear this dress.

This 50s party dress is made of three layers; sheer nylon chiffon with an opaque acetate satin lining as well as a center layer under the skirt portion of net, tulle crinoline. Other details are a metal back zipper, metal hook and eye, boning, fabric loops for hanging and a union label. I show the dress with a short crinoline under it that has accentuated the poof for my photos that isn't included with this dress.

This dress will float at your next event and accentuate a tiny waist and beautiful shoulders. A waist cincher may allow you to get into this dress if its a hair too small at the waist.

The condition is excellent. I see some scattered light soil spots to the hem area that are not visible in the fabric folds. I also found a small oval hole also lost in the folds. The dress is clean with no odors or underarm issues.

I think a dress that is floor length from the 1950s is a great find. It reminds me of one of those fancy Barbie cakes of old with the huge layer cake skirt.
