"The Painting" Vintage 1950's Hand Painted Floral Dress

Made in the most beautiful soft cotton with an incredible pattern of hand painted flowers with eye catching gold painted accents, this original 1950's Frank Starr dress is the perfect piece for your summer wardrobe.

Her sweetheart neckline is framed by thin shoulder straps and a fitted boned bodice. Her bust-line is accented by elegant pleats that meet to the side in a matching floral corsage. Her full skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat, to showcase the potential volume and movement of the skirt, completes the silhouette by setting off the cinched in waistline in a true 1950's New Look fashion.

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.
