Vintage 50s Dress Lace with Crinoline Skirt & Bolero Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a lovely 50s dress made with a top layer of lace over a acetate taffeta base.  The dress is sleeveless but has a matching bolero jacket with 3/4 length sleeves.  This 50s dress has a wide V shaped neckline both at the front and back.  It has a V shaped dropped waistline.  The bolero has a small shirt type collar that can be worn either up or down (see close-up photos) and is made in a cropped style.  The dress was posed with a crinoline underneath - no crinoline is provided, so to get the same 50s dress full skirt look you would need to own or acquire a crinoline.  The dress does up the back with a metal zipper.
