A gorgeous 1950’s tea length party/prom dress in a wonderful combination of lavender tulle and white lace ! The style typifies the 50’s - oh so feminine and figure flattering – narrow form fitting bodice, designed to enhance the bust and accentuate a tiny waist – with a twirling full skirt. There are three layers to the skirt – a lavender acetate underlayer, a middle single layer of lavender tulle to give the skirt extra body, topped with a floating overlayer of lavender tulle, trimmed in lace. No maker’s label remains but this dress appears professionally made. No fabric contents label but this is a synthetic, likely nylon blend.

Note the special details on this lovely dress – lace bodice trimmed with fantastic pleated tulle fan detail to enhance the bustline, cinched piped waistline, pleated tulle cape at the hipline and especially the twirling full tulle skirt. The dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.

The dress closes down the side with a hidden metal zipper. The entire dress is lined in matching lavender satin acetate.

Note there is also a matching lace shrug. The shrug is unlined, sleeveless and open face.

No vintage size label, so please see measurements below for proper fit. This is an extra small size which would best fit a modern size 0 or 2.


Bust – 31-32”
Waist – ideally 23-24” (possibly 25” with a tight squeeze)
Hips – full
Length – 44.5”
Torso length (strapless) – 11”
Skirt length (waist to hem) – 33.5”


This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No stains on the tulle or lace and underarms are clean. No tears in the tulle. The only minor mentions are a few water marks on the skirt lining, which are rather inconspicuous through the two layers of tulle
