This is a stunning cream cocktail dress with fine straps made from sparkling diamante braid. It is simply styled with a panel of ruching at the front bodice and a seamed waist. The skirt is slightly A line with a very small slit at the centre back hem. There are no fabric labels but it looks and feels like stiffened semi sheer chiffon with a shimmer effect. It is lined in white silk acetate and fastens with a side metal zip.
Vintage items rarely conform to modern day sizings and the UK size we give is only a guide. You are advised to check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit.
hips: free to 36"
Approximately UK size: 6 but please check measurements
1950s / CONDITION: Very good. There is a square of the outer fabric stitched on the lining at the centre back above the hem. This gives a deeper cream effect to the dress in that area. If it was a problem it could easily be unpicked and removed.
