Vintage 50s Party Dress White Nylon Chiffon Sequinned Bust S


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a lovely vintage 50s party dress made of white chiffon with a sequinned bust.  The chiffon is applied over an acetate slip that is supported by white tulle.  It has pleated shoulder straps that cover the upper arm and two sashes that fall down the back - they can be used as a scarf if desired (see last close-up photo).  It has a squared neckline and dropped waist - the skirt is gathered in tucks below the dropped waistline so that it flares out to a low calf length.  This vintage 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 metal zipper down the back.  The bust has sewn-in stays for extra support.
