vintage 1950s sky blue formal party dress / 50s full skirted frock
Frothy and fab blue nylon mesh party frock, circa 1950s vintage. Sleeveless, ballet neck. Horizontal gathers along the entire bodice. High V- back with hidden metal zip closure. Streams of fabric off the back center, as shown. Fully lined in acetate, with one layer of tulle for some volume; shown over a light crinoline.
Condition is very good- there is some fading / discoloration to the lining only, see photos. A smattering of light snags to the full skirt- simply worth noting. Does not effect wearability- otherwise excellent- fresh and ready to wear!
38" bust (19" across), 28" waist, at least 55" hip allowance, 114" hem lining circumference- the outer layer is even fuller, 19" bodice length (gathered detailing to upper hips), 29" skirt length, 48" overall length
