"Rouge Rouge" Vintage 1950's Red Satin Dress UK 10 US 6


This original 1950's dress, rendered in the most sumptuous red satin, is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe. 
The elegant V shaped neckline is framed by soft rounded scalloped edges and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice is accented by panelled seams that run along the length of the dress and create an iconic 1950's silhouette. The cinched in waistline sets off the elegant drape of the skirt, which has been photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume.

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for, they may however have a blemish or two. Here at Willow Hilson, we try our very best to note all the details of each garment, although we may sometimes overlook things, which we do apologise for. Please do not expect perfection, unless stated so.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure you favourite similar style garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed. All our measurements are taken whilst the garment is lying flat, we then double these measurements to reflect the actual size.
