Classic 1950s cotton dress


Sold - No Longer Available

SKU: DLSD Category: Tags: ,


Genuine 1950s cotton dress with classic 50s styling. It is a lovely light-weight cotton with slight sheen in a dusty lilac colour. No label attached but obviously shop bought.

The fitted sleeveless bodice is gathered under the bust at the front with cross-over top. Finished with a band and bow. It sits flat around torso. The armholes are finished with same fabric binding.

The gorgeous almost-circular skirt sits flat at the waist and has two large sewn-on pockets with wide turn back tops at hip. The dress is not lined.
Has original belt and closes at the side with a metal zip.

Please note I have added a crinoline which is not included in price.

Condition Excellent

Size MEDIUM (approx AU 12)

Please check measurements as the waist measurements were very small and the girls shorter in the 1950s. Measurements are measured flat on dress so please remember to allow room to move. It is always a good idea to check measurements against a dress that you know fits
