This original late 1950's dress, in the most vibrant shade of coral silk chiffon, with pleated and draped details, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.
Her straight cut neckline is framed by thin shoulder straps and a wonderful silk chiffon sash, that can be worn draped behind the shoulder line, or wrapped around the shoulders. Her fitted and boned bodice, is set off by gathered sewn pleats, that draw the eye to the cinched in waistline. Her elegant skirt, boasts small pleats along the left hand side of the waistline, that drape elegantly into the skirt, completing this piece in a figure flattering silhouette.
