1980s does 50s shawl collar dress


  • Description


This is a very pretty 50s style dress made from lemon viscose fabric with a bold floral print in lilac, green and yellow. It has a shawl collar neckline with a cross over bodice and three decorative buttons. The waist is seamed and the skirt is very full and flared, falling from box pleats under the waist line. There is an integral silk acetate and tulle petticoat in the skirt for fullness. The dress fastens with a back zip.
