Decorated with the most exquisite abstract trailing floral pattern ribbon work on a jet black bengaline background, this original 1950's wiggle dress is the perfect cocktail dress.

The simplicity of her square neckline, sets off a fitted bodice and wide shoulder straps. Her nipped in waistline, draws the eye to the simple fitted skirt, creating that timeless hourglass silhouette.

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.
