"Eau De Nil Embroidery" Vintage 1950's Eau De Nil Floral Embroidered Dress UK 10-12

This timeless 1950's eau de Nil floral cotton dress, with intricate cut out embroidery patterns, is the perfect piece to add a splash of colour to your vintage wardrobe.

Her rounded neckline is framed by short capped sleeves and cut out embroidered flowers along the neckline and top of the bodice. Her cinched in waistline is drawn in by elastic, that gathers the fabric in small pleats along the back of the dress and to either side of the front. Her elegant flowing demi-circle skirt is decorated with matching cut out floral embroidery, trimmed with white embroidery thread, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship of the era.

This dress is sheer behind the cut out embroidery, and would benefit in being worn with a dress slip to conceal modesty.
