This wonderful 1950's faille dress in the most vibrant shade of macaroon yellow faille with matching yellow satin accents, is just the piece to brighten up your wardrobe.
The rounded neckline of the dress is framed by short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice, is accented by Princess seams that run along the length of the dress and frame the pleated satin ribbon feature which sits beneath the bust-line. The cinched in waistline, draws the eye to the elegant line of the panelled skirt, which has been photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume. The back of the dress is set off by a rounded nape, that draws the eye by the detailed satin bow that sits along the back of the dress, completing this dress in an iconic 1950's design.
