Vintage 1950s Party Dress Yellow Flocked White Organdy Sz M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1950s party dress made of yellow floral rose flocked white synthetic organdy over yellow taffeta. This 1950s party dress has a matching shrug jacket and belt. It is sleeveless with a squared neckline and dropped waist - the skirt is gathered in tucks around the dropped waistline so that it flares out to an ankle length. The dress was photographed with a crinoline - the use of a crinoline creates a fuller look although it’s not absolutely necessary. The dress closes with a metal zipper down the left side.
Fabric: There is no content label, but the organdy is synthetic, maybe nylon or some other synthetic, while the taffeta appears to be acetate.
Label: There had been a label on the back of the bolero, but it was cut away by the original owner. This was a common practice as it could be irritating to keep the label on the back of the neck.
Colour: White and yellow, although the white takes on the yellow cast of the underskirt - ignore the greyish shadows in the photos.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit:
Dropped waist: 34”
Hips: Full - meant to fall loosely/flare out
Length: 46”, measured flat from the top to the hemline
Condition: This 1950s party dress is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odour.
This is a lovely 1950s party dress - pretty style and decoration!
