"Emerald Green" Vintage 1950's Emerald Green Brocade Peplum Dress UK 8-10 US 4-6


This bold 1950's emerald green brocade dress with a pattern of ribbons and bows,  is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe.

The rounded neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice is accented by tailored darts that run from beneath the bust-line and draw the eye to the cinched in waistline, accented by a matching silk brocade waist belt. The elegant skirt, boasts a full circle peplum tier, which radiates from pleats along the waistline, and is set off by a thin layer of tulle underlay, adding extra volume to the design. The straight line cut of the underskirt, completes this dress in an iconic and breathtaking silhouette.
