This is a really good example of 1950s knitted formal wear with an elaborate applique floral spray pattern that features on the bodice and the lower hem of the skirt. It is a classic shift dress with no fastenings and easily slips on over the head. With a low scoop neck, little cap sleeves and Princess seamed body. I love the attention to detail on the applique work which really makes this dress stand out. Although this is unlabelled we have sold a number of these dresses over the years, all were made in Italy and imported by the most renowned US department stores of the day like Saks 5th Avenue and Neiman Marcus. The dress is in fabulous vintage condition with no issues of any note and will best fit sizes up to UK 12 or US 8.
