"Scalloped Embroidery & Tulle" Vintage 1950's Pink Embroidered Satin & Tulle Dress UK 6-8 US 2-4


This truly spectacular 1950's dress, rendered in a blush pink satin which is embroidered with pink lurex and cream threads in a swirling floral design, set against layers of matching pink tulle, which is framed by scalloped edging, is the perfect piece for your vintage collection.  

The wide square neckline is framed by scalloped petal edges, along the front and back of the dress, which set off the sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice, is accented by tailored darts, which run from below the bust-line and set off the cinched in waistline, which boasts a pipped detail in matching fabric. The full circle cut of the skirt, is accepted by elegant draped pleats along each side, which set off the scalloped edges of the satin top layer of the shirt, which draws in along the back of the waistline with a central metal zip and hook and eye, creating a wonderful scalloped frame around the triple tiered tulle skirt bustle feature of the back of the dress.

This dress has not been photographed with a petticoat, but one may be worn to add volume to the skirt-line.
