Description

A typically 1950s cocktail or party dress from British stalwart Frank Usher. I'd go for c. '54? It has wonderfully stylish rushed details, as shown in the close ups.

Featuring a graphic rose print in shades of blue and indigo, (my mannequin is not doing it justice in the bust department!) fitted waist, and full skirt with integral hooped petticoat.

The dress has a pellon type interlining, and a fully boned strapless muslin bodice within.

Fastens to the rear with a central metal zipper.

Measures:

labelled a 38

bust 36” (Measures across back) with decent cup room - would probably fit a 34 or 36 C/D

waist max 27”, a comfy 26”

free hips

shoulder to waist 14.5”

waist to hem 28”

shoulder to hem 42”

Condition:

It would be excellent, were it not for a number of small marks as shown in the photos. I've not dry cleaned as my cleaner doesn't have a great history with interfacing. The marks really aren't immediately obvious.

The print appears to be slightly different shades of blues, but this is throughout and I think it is intentional rather than fade - please see all pictures. I think its a great example of 1950s fashion!
