"Layers of Tulle" Vintage 1950's Cream Layered Tulle & Rayon Dress UK 6-8 US 2-4


This timeless and iconic 1950's dress, rendered in a white layered tulle, with delicate pleated rayon accents, is the perfect piece for that special occasion.

The strapless neckline of the dress, features a sweetheart décolletage in soft white pleated tulle. The fitted and boned bodice, boasts a pleated rayon panel, which radiates from the side of the right hand side bust-line and joins the left side seam, beneath a decorative rayon bow. The cinched in waistline, sets of the near full circle cut of the skirt, which is accented by tiers of pleated and gathered tulle. The skirt is lined in a layer of rayon and a layer of simple tulle finished with a pleated and tiered hemline, creating added volume to the skirt, whilst completing this dress in an iconic 1950's silhouette.  This dress has been photographed with a medium petticoat for added volume, this is not included within the listing.
