"Organdie" Vintage 1950's Silk Organza Floral Embroidered Dress
With the most exquisite floral embroidery on an ivory silk organza, this original 1950's dress is perfect for any special occasion.
Her V shaped neckline is framed by a border of floral embroidery and a sleeveless cut. Her fitted bodice sets off the cinched in waistline, and dropped waist seams that meet in undulating points. Her full circle skirt, layered with tulle and lining to create an iconic silhouette, drapes beautifully from the drop waist seams.
This dress has been photographed with a medium petticoat for added volume, which is not included in the listing

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.
