Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a 50s era rockabilly style party dress featuring a white polka dot silk screened print against a navy blue background color.  Each polka dot has a “ghosted” image shadowing it.  The dress is made in a sleeveless style with a full “circle” cut skirt.  The bodice has a  horizontally pleated white insert at the V shaped neckline with a decorative bow at the bottom of the neckline.  The waist is defined with a wide band and has a matching belt to further accentuate the form.  The skirt is cut full - please note that the dress was posed with a crinoline, but none is included, so to achieve the same full skirt, you should use a crinoline.  It does up with a metal zipper up the back and is lined with a purple toned acetate.  Please note that the bust was too large for my mannequin, so was pinned back for the photos - the silhouette of the dress will be somewhat different on your body. 

Age: 1950s

Label: No label 

Color: Blue and white

Material: Organza, probably rayon

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium to large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurement with a similar garment that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):

Shoulders:  17” across

Bust:  40” around, taken under the arm opening - should be some extra room

Waist:  29” around, uncinched

Hips:  Full

Overall length:  46”


It is in very good condition - I’ve noticed a light brownish tone on two of the polka dots that I haven’t tried to remove, but otherwise, very clean and looks like it saw little use.  This has been well kept and stored over the years.

This is a perfect 50s era dress -  great party dress....
