Charming dress and bolero of the late 1950s or early 1960s perfect for the casual bride, your rehearsal dinner or any party you want to wow them at. Lovely sheer sleeveless dress features a darted shelf bust trimmed in velvet ribbon tied in a bow with hem length tails. Full pleated skirt. Square neckline in front and back. Thin built in muslin crinoline ties at the waist before zipping up this floral garden. Closes at center back with a metal Talon zipper topped with a hook and thread eye. This dress came to me with an unlabeled blue linen bolero. It is lined in a complimentary colored floral acetate fabric that does not exactly match the dress, but they are the same size and look so good together that I decided not to mind that they may not be original to each other. Closes with hook and eye at the neck.

Photographed with one reproduction petticoat NOT included in listing. We had such fun photographing this dress that I put all the photos in a facebook album for your enjoyment.

Jerry Gilden ceased production in 1960, so this dress most likely dates to the 1950s, though it could also be from as late as the year 1960.


I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Meaghan's measurements are 33-25-38 and she stands 5'8" tall.

~Bust: 37"
~Waist: 27"
~Hip: Full
~Length shoulder to waist: 16"

Bust: 37"
Sleeve length: 18" from collar to hem.
Length: 14.5"
Hem: 32" Open at hem, so this measurement is flexible.


Very Good condition. A little wear consistent with age, but no real flaws to note.
