The Garden Sketch Book 1950s Party Dress

The Garden Sketch Book 1950s Party Dress


A simply amazing 1950s party dress with showcases all the famous hallmarks of good fifties design. Featuring a heavily structured crinoline under the full skirt in printed acetate, the volume in the bottom half of this dress accentuates the waisted shape through contrast to the fitted bodice. A gathered cummerbund-style piece in woodland green brings the silhouette in dramatically at the waist, and ties in a large bow across the back. A simple boat neck and sleeveless bodice allows the skirt and print to do all of the talking. A breathtaking piece of dressmaking history with incredible construction and styling.

Bust: 34"

Condition: In excellent, with minor marking to the skirt which is likely to come out with dry-cleaning. It is very faint and blends well into the fabric, so we feel that it is completely wearable as is.
