"Ceil Chapman" Vintage 1950's Black Ceil Chapman Pleated Dress UK 6 US 2

Rendered in a classic silhouette, this rare 1950's Ceil Chapman dress, is the perfect Little black dress for your vintage wardrobe.

Her Deep V shaped neckline is framed by mid width shoulder straps, that boast small pleats along each seam, that drape into gathered pleats along either side of the cross over V neckline. Her fitted bodice, is set off by a cinched in waistline, accented by a pleated waist sash detail, that joins the bodice pleats in a stylised mock knot, to the centre front of the waist. Her elegant skirt, continues the pleated knot detail in a mock cross over cut, that drapes to the front of the skirt, and rounds along the hemline, giving the illusion of a cross over cut skirt. An iconic style rendered in a classic Ceil Chapman Pleated Silhouette.

This dress is fully lined in rayon.
