1950s Blue Velvet dress embellished with lilac metal studs gathering the velvet skirt catching the light and giving a luxurious and sumptuous feel. The dress is fully lined with satin to the bodice and Vilene (to stiffen and shape) the skirt. The skirt is further interlined (between the Vilene and velvet with net to add further fulness to the skirt. The dress has been pictured with a further net underskirt (not included) to compensate for the vacant space on the mannequin where legs would ordinarily be.

The dress is in excellent vintage condition with no obvious flaws to detract from it’s exceptional quality. The only things to note is that at some point the zip has been replaced with a navy one. This is not visible when worn as there are two hook and eye fastenings to the back to render the zip invisible. The second thing is that one of the studs near the hem of the skirt has been replaced but this is not easily noticeable.

The fabric is a luxurious silk velvet which is soft to touch and catches the light beautifully!
