Vintage 1950s Gold Satin Party Dress
Utterly delicious party dress from the 1950s. Glorious gold satin, and I suspect its a silk satin, trimmed in gold velvet vertical stripes and bows. High neckline with a perfect Peter Pan collar, slight bullet shape to the bodice. Full circle skirt, and I do mean a full circle. You can see my crinoline is too short to really show off how glorious this skirt is, but a full length crinoline would do it wonders. Bodice is lined, skirt is not. There is a metal zipper down the back and three hook and eyes at the top. No label. I'd say a smallish to medium sized.
Excellent vintage condition. The only things worth noting is a shadow-ey grey smudge on one side, I've shown a photo. Its mostly lost in the folds of the skirt. And after photographing this I saw a water stain along sections of the bottom hem. It doesn't come up very far, however, so one could hem this a few inches and get rid of it.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, and waist Armpit to armpit across bust: 36" Natural Waist: 26" Hips: full Shoulder to natural waist: 15" Shoulder to bottom hem: 52"
