What a confection! This 1950s dress was designed for parties, proms, dances and all kinds of lovely events. It is a pinkish-lavender shade, in layers. Included are ribbon-embroidered nylon tulle, tulle, and acetate taffeta. There is a strapless bodice with four internal bones for structure. The beautiful bust detail features tulle gathered over taffeta with center ruching in a sweetheart contour. There is a cuff of the ribbon-detailed tulle. The skirt is very full, with two layers of tulle over taffeta. The beribboned tulle arcs down in points from the waist. There is a side covered metal zipper. The little bolero has a pointed collar and a hook and bar fastener at its neck. The dress has no tags, but appears commercially made.

Condition: Very good and just dry cleaned. I have mended a seam along the zipper and there are some spots on the back of the taffeta layer, shown in the last square. These stains are barely visible with the full over layers. The inner neckline of the bolero is ever so slightly discolored (much improved in cleaning). The dress presents spectacularly.

Size: Small to maybe medium.

Bust-35.75" (19.5" across the front and 16.25" across the back)
Top of side to waist-8"
Waist to hem-33"

The bolero is 14" long from the back of the neck to the hem.

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
