"Oceanie" Vintage 1950's Navy Blue & White Cut out Embroidery Dress

With the most exquisite navy blue cut out pattern with white embroidery edges, this original 1950's fine organza dress is perfect for your vintage wardrobe.

Her high neckline is framed by the smallest turned down pointed collar, and a keyhole feature along the bust line. Her fitted bodice is framed by short sleeves, with turned up pointed cuffs. Her incredible covered button and loop fastenings run the length of the bodice, and finish just below the cinched in waistline, which is drawn in by a matching belt. Her simple skirt boast iconic structure, while keeping a flowing cut from the open split to the front of the dress.

This dress is sheer and only has fastenings to the front centre, which means the skirt is open to the front. It will need to be worn with a dress slip.
