A breathtaking piece to behold, this original 1950's silk dress in a palette of greens depicting blooming roses amongst dappled florals, set against a cream silk base, is just the piece to welcome the warmer weather with.
The rounded neckline of the dress is framed by a simple shoulder line and a sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice, is accented by tailored darts that run from the waistline to the bust-line. The cinched in waistline, is accented by the gathered pleats beneath the waistband that radiate along either side of the front and back of the central part of the waistline. The panelled cut of the skirt, in an A line design, completes this dress in an iconic late 1950's silhouette. Finished with a deep V shaped back-line, which draws in with a hook and loop above the central metal zip fastening.
This dress is lined in cream silk.
