A breathtaking dress, rendered in a sumptuous iridescent blue organza that sheens and shimmers as it catches the light, embellished with blue toned iridescent sequins and pearlescent white sequin bow appliqués, this original 1950's dress is the perfect statement piece for your collection.
The sweetheart neckline is framed by thin shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice of the dress is accented by a pointed seam beneath the bust-line panel, on which the pearlescent white sequin bow embellishments begin trailing downwards along the dress. The cinched in waistline, set off the elegant panelled cut of the skirt, which is accented by the decorative trailing sequins and rows of bow appliqués, drawing the eye to the fullness of the skirt-line. This Dress is fully lined in blue rayon. The dress has been photographed with a medium petticoat for added volume, this is not included within the listing.
