"Roses & Bows" Vintage 1950's Rose Print & Bow Detail Strapless Dress UK 8 US 4


This spectacular 1950's dress, rendered in a pink floral rose print with fresh green leaves and stems, set against a white background, is just the piece to welcome to your seasonal wardrobe. 

The strapless neckline of the dress, is set off by a straight cut décolletage, which boasts statement bows along each side of the bust-line in matching fabric. The fitted bust-line is accented by soft pleats, which radiate from the décolletage to below the bust, creating a sweet cross over detail. The bust-line is accented by internal boning, which creates an empire line cut. The elegant line of the skirt, is set off by a central inverted pleat, framed by box pleats to either side, radiating from the base of the boned bust-line and bodice, completing this dress in an iconic and timeless silhouette.  This dress has been photographed with a medium petticoat for added volume, this is not included in the listing.
