This product is unavailable
This is a very pretty 1950s era crinoline dress made with a top layer of black nylon voile over a copper brown taffeta base. The nylon voile is decorated with flocking in floral and foliate pattern and also has sparkles applied to it, partly on the pattern and also over the bottom of the voile. The dress is sleeveless and has a V shaped neckline both at the front and back. The dress was posed with a crinoline underneath - no crinoline is provided, so to get the same 50s full skirt look you would need to own or acquire a crinoline. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper.
Label: Jonathan Logan Jonathan Logan was founded in 1938 by David Schwartz with Dorris Varnum designing the line. During the mid-1950s Jeanne Carr took over as designer.
