Stunning 1950s Tea dress, in Vivid ocean colours
The gown is hand made and has remained stored after being worn during 1954 and 55

It is eloquently styled with the hems being hand stitched.
The bodice has reinforced seams to give definition to the lady’s upper shape, with a slight stiffening to the lining should the lady prefer not to wear undergarments.
The skirt of the dress has a rayon silk lining, with the outer rayon brocade.

As the garment is vintage I have given measurements taken when the dress was laid flat. These are given as a guide.

Guide Size 16
The length; 50”
Underarm to underarm; 42”
Waist; 34”
Hips; 44”+
Across the shoulders; 16”
Shoulder to waist; 16”

The bodice of the dress is stunning, and fits into the waist, then flows over the hips to give a stunning full circle skirt made up of six panels.
Shoulders are shaped to hug the ladies shoulders or worn Bardot
style. The front had a deep cowl and the collar to the back has deep chevron points.

This is the most gorgeous dress, perfect for any vintage themed ball.
It’s original genuine and stunningly beautiful being kept in a store along with other fashion items.
