1950s Navy stripe chiffon and mauve satin dress

1950s Navy stripe chiffon and mauve satin dress


This charming 1950's dress is made out of navy sheer silk chiffon with mauve striped organza fabric to the full skirt. It features an elegant slash neck, the fabric gathers beautifully at the shoulders. The gently fitted bodice which is nipped in at the waist and gathers to form a full skirt is entirely unlined; allowing the wearer to choose whether to wear it with a beautiful vintage over-wired bra and half slip or alternatively this dress would look great with a contrasting coloured (mauve?) modesty slip.  

This stunning vintage cocktail dress fastens with a side metal zip.

1950s / CONDITION: Very good - there are a few tiny pinholes to both the bodice and skirt of the chiffon although these are not very noticeable. There is some very slight fading to the mauve organza fabric. There is a tiny pin-head sized mark in one of the gathers of the skirt (see image). All flaws are reflected in the price. See images.
