This is a stunning classic style prom dress from the 1950's made from baby blue chiffon fabric over lilac silk acetate. It has thin straps and a straight neckline. The chiffon is gathered at the bodice and there is a deep gathered cummerbund at the waist. The very full skirt falls from lots of tight gathers under the waist line. There is a double layer of chiffon over the lilac silk acetate. The dress fastens with a back metal zip and hooks and eyes.

1950's / CONDITION: Very good - there are some fine pulls and small patches of thinning in the chiffon which are lost in the fabric folds. A couple of pinhead holes again lost in the folds.
