Vintage 1950s Party Dress w Spaghetti Straps and Organza Shawl
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 50s party dress made with spaghetti straps and accompanied with a matching organza shawl. This 50s party dress has chain stitched white polka dots on a blue organza piece across the top of the bodice. There are loops at either side of the waist, but no belt is present - you could use a belt of your choosing should you decide that you require one. The dress is constructed with a top layer of organza, a middle layer of tulle and a bottom layer of taffeta-like fabric. This 50s party 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 zipper down the back
Fabric: There is no content label, but the organza appears to be rayon as does the inner fabric, but could be some other synthetic or blended fabric.
Label: None - most likely seamstress made
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a small size with a larger waist, please note the following measurements for fit:
Hips: 42” (meant to be full and fall loosely/flare out)
Length: 45”, measured flat from the top of the spaghetti straps
The shawl measures 70” by 28”
Condition: This 50s party dress is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odour.
This is a lovely 50s party dress - pretty style!
