"Draped & Pleated Sequins" Vintage 1950's Draped & Pleated Dress UK 10-12 US 6-8

This spectacular 1950's ivory silk jersey dress, embellished with iridescent sequins, and adorned with draped and gathered pleats, is the perfect statement piece for your vintage wardrobe.

The rounded neckline of the dress is accented by a central modesty panel, fully embellished with clear iridescent sequins. The sleeveless cut is set off by pleated shoulder straps that join the bodice in a cowl neckline, drawing the eye to the rounded pleats and draping of the silk jersey, which sets off the fitted cut and cinched in waistline. The fitted cut of the longline skirt is accented by a stylised front sash that drapes from the left hand side of the waistline to the hem and is framed to either side with rounded pleats that contour and drape along the hipline.  Finished with a central zip fastening along the back of the bodice, framed to either side by gathered pleats. The dress is fully lined in rayon.
