Vintage 1950s Yellow Brocade Party Dress

Toadstool Farm Vintage

Stunning gold and yellow brocade party dress from the 1950s. Skirt is just beautifully pleated with lovely box pleats. You can see my crinoline is a bit too full for this but a slightly less full one would be perfect.  Bodice is lined with pellon, skirt is unlined. Elbow length sleeves, scooped neck and a rounded V back, metal zipper down the back. No label. I'd say a smallish to medium sized. This dress just makes me think of An American in Paris at the Holidays. Sigh....
