This original 1950s dress has a super feminine silhouette and nicely executed details such as the small, square neckline that features a modesty panel with a sailor collar and bow. The collar is consolidated with a little hexagonal buckle that from a distance looks like it may be diamante but it is a clever use of inverted faceting to create the sparkle. The dress has very short dolman sleeves and is darted and fitted at the waist. The dress has concealed, front pockets and fastens to the side with the original metal zip. The dress appears to be a lightweight man-made crepe fabric that has a soft sheen to it. It is in shades of blue and inky black in a very painterly floral design. The dress isn't lined and retains its original fabric belt. In excellent vintage condition with no issues of any note. No labels are present but the dress has been manufactured, probably in the USA as the belt has some manufacturing stamps to the reverse. Of note is has a good seam allowance and is currently a best fit for around a UK 10 - 12 or US 6-8.
