Vintage 1950s Crinoline Dress Floral Embroidered Taffeta Murray Bowen Montreal M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely 1950s era dress made of black satiny taffeta with a floral motif embroidered overall. The dress was made by “Murray Bowen & Company Montreal”. The dress has a squared neckline, short sleeves and black velvet ribbon with “bow” applied under the neckline. The skirt is cut full, like a circle skirt, and posed with a crinoline, but no crinoline is supplied. The dress does up the side with a metal zipper.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium to large size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the dress:
Bust: 40” around, taken at the underarms - appears large due to cut of sleeve
Waist: 30” around
Hips: Full / 44”, meant to fall loosely
Length: 47” long, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odors - this dress looks to have seen little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a lovely 1950s era dress, attractive floral embroidery - fun party dress!
