Description

An exquisite strapless 1950’s party/prom dress in wonderful confection of taffeta and smoky tulle. The muted pastel tones of pink and lavender are both ethereal and romantic. This dress was likely originally designed as a wedding or prom gown and is certainly lovely enough to be worn at a very special occasion. No maker’s label but this dress appears professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is likely a synthetic blend.

Note the details on this stunning dress – strapless form fitting (boned) bodice with petal shaped ruched tulle bustline, twirling full skirt, and especially the very unusual rust colored velvet flocking decoration on the tulle. There are three layers to this skirt – an underlayer of pink satin acetate, a middle layer of fine lavender tulle to give the skirt additional volume, topped with an outer layer of the same lavender tulle with flocking detail.

This dress closes down the side with a hidden metal zipper and fastener. The entire dress is lined in lavender satin acetate. The dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.

No vintage size label, so please see measurements below for a proper fit. This is a small size that would likely best fit a modern size 2 or 4.
