Rare find — this item is hard to come by.

  • Vintage from the 1950s
  • Materials: Chiffon

- Absolutely stunning vintage 1950s emerald green dress with black & gold stripes throughout.

- The colour is a lovely rich emerald green, some of the photos wash the colour out a bit.

- Per label the make is Blanes, no more info other than 'Size D'

- The fabric is very light with a lovely sheen, sort of a thin taffeta maybe with black and gold lurex stripes on the green, very striking.

- Looks like it was boned but the bones have been removed making the top less structured, but possibly more comfortable!

- The only issue is the stitching around the straps which looks like it's been under a bit of pressure & could probably do with a teeny tidy up, nothing particularly noticeable or insurmountable.

- Other than that, lovely condition with no stains, marks, holes or damage.

- I wore this a couple of times years ago and I recall the skirt is quite see through when worn so a black slip or petticoat would be a good idea. The first photo shown is with a black net petticoat underneath.

- No belt loops so maybe never had it's own belt but looks great with a black belt, & probably with a gold one too.

SIZE My measurements (fastened & laid flat) are:
Armpit to armpit 16"/16.5"
Bust up to 36" I would say
Waist 13"/13.5" across
Skirt length 28"
I would imagine the strap length could be adjusted for a good fit.

- The top is fully lined.

- Fastens at the back with a fully working metal zip plus hook & eye at the top.

Really beautiful dress, great for dancing, parties and occasions.

A bit of a late review, but I love this so much! I have been wearing it as a dress with t shirts underneath, I was worried about it being seethrough but it isn't at all. I wear this when I'm having a bad day because I always feel better and more confident, its such a pretty shape xx
