Vintage 1950s Day Dress Grey Faille Kathi Originals Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1950s day dress, the type that a smart dressed lady would wear to lunch or to shop. This 1950s day dress is sleeveless with shoulder straps, a squared neckline. box pleats at either front side of the bodice and is made in a mid-calf length. It has a pocket at either side and cinches at the waist with a matching belt. The skirt of the dress is gathered under the waist seam, which gives it its flared shape. The dress is unlined and does up the left side with a metal zipper. The neckline is decorated with a square rhinestone brooch. Please note that the dress was a little large on my mannequin.

Fabric: I think that it is a natural rayon or a blended rayon - the fabric is like a fine faille with a slight sheen and has lovely weight and fall
