"Promenade" Vintage 1950's Trailing Floral Dress

With the most exquisite colour combination of trailing and tumbling magenta Chrysanthemums, against the lightest yellow background, this original 1950's dress is perfect for brightening up your wardrobe.

Her simple square neckline is framed by adjustable shoulder straps with delicate matching belt buckles. Her fitted bodice draws in along the waist and falls to a dropped waistline style. Her flowing skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat, creates the iconic 1950's silhouette.

Enjoy wearing this little lady paired with a raspberry pink swing coat and court shoes for work, or with a denim jacket and plimsolls for a day out in the sunshine

The petticoat is not included in the listing
