Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage 1950s dress made in a café au lait brown toned coloured polished cotton. This 1950s dress has a dramatic turned bateau neckline collar that is decorated with black velvet rickrack with a bow at its centre. It has short sleeves, an accented V shaped waistline and a full cut skirt that is constructed with box pleats around its entirety. The dress closes with a fine tooth brass zipper at its back and is unlined. This 1950s dress is posed with a crinoline underneath, but no crinoline is supplied - you would have to supply your own crinoline to create the full skirt look, although it is wearable without a crinoline.
