Here is a beautiful vintage 1950s tulle, velvet and rayon acetate dress. It is a strapless gown with a shelf bust. It has four stays in the bodice, two at the front and two at the back. It does up on the side with a metal zipper.

Gorgeous home seamstress made formal dress.

Strapless with sweetheart neckline.
Rust brown acetate lining under two layers of soft green tulle.
Wide, full skirt, perfect for a full crinoline or pettycoat!
Lined with acetage, and with a long metal side zipper.
Bottom hems of tulle are unfinished - and this is how they were intended to be.

No size label, so refer to measurments to a ensure proper fit.

Bust – 35”
Waist – up to 24”

This dress is in nice vintage condition! No spots or holes. All of the seams are tight. I thought at one time I saw a small snag or hole in the tulle skirt, but I checked it all carefully, over and over, and now I saw no holes or snags in it at all.
Underarms are in great shape, no discoloration or wear.
Overall ~ GREAT!
