Vintage 1950's Dress | Goldenrod Yellow Taffeta with Ivory Spiderweb Cotton Lace | Size XS
Vintage 1950s dress made of bright goldenrod yellow taffeta with a stunning ivory spiderweb and floral cotton lace overlay making this dress not only gorgeous but very special. Fitted in the bodice with a darted strapless bust with vertical bones to shape and support, with the lace overlay covering the shoulders and providing 3/4 sleeves for modesty. Adorable popcorn edging along the neckline and arm openings give a nice detail. A wide-sweeping flared skirt falling below the knee with a built-in petticoat gives volume and structure, with a beautiful wide yellow taffeta 'ribbon' waist which adds so much drama, especially in the back. The yellow underdress has a hidden side zipper, with the lace closing with button-snaps for ease of wear. A truly unique and fabulous dress!
Very good: Hand washed and steamed, there are a couple of small holes in the petticoat which do not show. A few brownish marks on the lace as pictured, and two tiny holes in the folds of the yellow taffeta. The bust, unfortunately, has a bluish-gray stain that I was unable to remove, but thankfully this does not show under the lace. Priced accordingly.
