Fabulous 1950s Dress created by Clive Rodney for Clisoda W1 from a very fine silk satin. The front of the bodice is finely darted to give definition and shape.
The shoulder straps are of a fine spaghetti slender style

The gown is styled on a pencil or wiggle design with the hem dipping lower at the back, not by much just 2”. This is quite a classical design, simple and understated, and the height of couture styling.
This is a beautiful garment, perfect to team with a little bolero or Capelet, or perhaps a stole or wrap.
Perfect for the cocktail hour, and those special parties, Vintage Wedding, or retro nights.
