Rendered in the deepest shade of forest green silk brocade, with a delicate scattered floral design, this original 1950's dress, is just the piece for your vintage collection.
The elegant rounded neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice is accented by elegant rounded seams that draw the eye into the cinched in waistline. The timeless skirt, is set off by double pleats to either side of the front of the waistband and along the back, that draw the eye to the elegant drape of the silk brocade along the hipline, and the Demi-circle cut of the skirt, completing this dress in an iconic 1950's silhouette.
