"Champagne Brocade & Satin" Vintage 1950's Champagne Brocade & Satin Bow Dress UK 8 US 4

Rendered in the most breathtaking silhouette, this truly breathtaking 1950's champagne toned silk floral brocade dress, accented by blush pink satin details, is the perfect dress for your vintage wardrobe.

Her strapless neckline is accented by a V shaped décolletage, framed to either side by structured pointed boned panels. These are in turn set off to each side by a panel of blush pink pleated satin, that joins the back of the dress to frame the zip back fastening.
Her fitted bodice, is accented by ruched and gathered pleated panels to either side of the front of the bodice, that draw the eye to the cinched in waistline and simple central panels.
Her elegant skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume, showcases a demi- circle cut, and two inverted pleats along the centre back, joined together by decorative pink satin bows that run along four points to the back of the dress.
