"Draped Pleating" Vintage 1950's Cream Draped & Pleated Dress UK 8 US 4


Rendered in a classic silhouette, this original 1950's cream dress, with delicate pleated details, is just the piece for your timeless collection. 

The bateau cut neckline is accented by a pleated cowl feature, which radiates from the left hand side shoulder line, beneath a pleated loop from which a pleated sash  drapes along the front of the bodice to join the central part of the waist seam. The sleeveless cut, sets off the fitted bodice, which is accented by soft pleats from the cowl neckline, and the elegant pleated sash. The cinched in waistline, draws the eye to the elegant line of the skirt, which boasts pleats that radiate from the central part of the waistline, mimicking the pleated design along the base of the bodice. Finished with a rounded scooped backline, this dress showcases the iconic figure flattering silhouette of the era. This dress is fully lined in acrylic.
