Cotillion lace party dress, 1950s
I love the unabashed femininity of 1950s fashion! Party dresses like this tiered lace concoction were cut to emphasize a good figure. The full skirt makes the waist appear smaller; the strapless design hints at womanly curves.
The inner construction of these wonderful party dresses left nothing to chance. The bodice is boned for support and the skirt has a built-in crinoline. The dress is completely lined with pink faille and closes on the side with a metal zipper.
A single velvet ribbon across the bodice is the only adornment needed on the embroidered lace. You will feel like a princess in this figure flattering party dress— sexy, yet demure.
The condition is excellent. It is clean and ready to wear.
It measures: 36" bust, 25" waist, full skirt, 10" bodice center-front length, and 28 1/2" skirt length.
