50s Chiffon Party Dress
Vintage 50s Chiffon Party Dress
A gorgeous bombshell style dress in a 50s abstract floral print. This sleeveless dress has a scoop neck and back with piping along the edges. The bodice has diagonal princess seams and bust darts. The dress has a nipped waist. The chiffon layer of the skirt is pleated and has a cute looped accent detail around the waist. The dress has a full metal zipper, a large hem, and is fully lined in a cream satin or acetate. This dress is in very good condition. It was probably fitted to the original owner since the bust is very full. Also, it is possible the lining falls below the hem in one spot. I can't really tell if actually does, or just appears to do so on my dress form - a slight tack to the lining may be required by the new owner.
