Vintage 1950s Pink Taffeta Gown with Black Lace Bodice

Toadstool Farm Vintage

Gorgeous pink fit and flare taffeta 1950s formal dress. Slight drop waist with the tiniest of peplums. Black lace bodice with an illusion waist decolletage. Bows at either shoulder, a keyhole back and gathers at the bust. The skirt is nearly a full circle.  Side metal zip. Small size I'd say.
Good to great vintage condition.  Still very wearable but does have some issues. First there are small holes and breaks in the lace, see photos for an example. None bigger than pea sized and most quite unnoticeable as they blend into the overall pattern. There is also some mild small discoloration on the pink in a few places, like the bows. The worst flaw to me is a rather large but very faint spot on the skirt that appears to be some sort of watermark. See photos.  There's a lot of skirt here so it does fold into the volume of fabric but in bright daylight I would say it would be noticeable if looked for. Probably not at night however.  Priced accordingly and As Is.
