This charming 1950s printed couture dress is beautifully constructed with some exquisite features. The overlay fabric is a silky/cotton blend and printed with an unusual floral design in ochre, rust, chocolate brown and green. The sweetheart neckline hosts gamine shoulder straps each with 3 boot-lace ribbon strands that are platted over the shoulder. The bodice of this piece showcases some incredible pleated panels which cross over the breast atop of horizontal pleats that define the waistband beautifully. The full skirt is gathered at the waist into softer pleating to create volume and movement in the fabric. Falling just above the ankle and fully lined with a sateen underlay. In superb condition, this piece is petite and would best suit US size 0 - 2, UK size 4 - 6.
