This magnificent 1950's cream floral lace dress, fully embellished with white rocailles glass beads and iridescent clear sequins, is just the piece to add to your vintage collection.
The bateau cut neckline of the dress is framed by a simple shoulder line and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice, is set off by tailored darts, that draw the eye to the cinched in waistline, which is accented by a matching lace covered belt, which fastens beneath a lace covered buckle. The elegant line of the skirt, skims the silhouette and completes this dress in an iconic 1950's fitted wiggle silhouette. This dress is not lined and has an element of sheerness to it, we recommend the use of a dress slip, should you wish to conceal ones modesty.
