Cream colored delicate floral lace gown in the quintessential "New Look" style of the 1950s, in this case specifically the mid-late 1950s. Round neck with bracelet sleeves. Nipped in at the natural waist which is defined by piping with a slight dip in the back at the zipper. Layers and layers of tulle to give it that total 50s feel. Large luscious satin cream bow in back at waist with long tails. Bow is removable with snap closures. Long back hidden metal Talon zipper.
*Size: US 13 / 14 (marked differently in several places on the inner garment--see photos)
(See dimensions below. Clothing is measured flat and un-stretched)
Hips: 23" (very full skirt)
*Condition: Very Good. Darkening at the end of the bow's tails (see photo) which could either be whitened (a little lemon juice and water goes a long way), shortened or altogether replaced--though the fabric is so lush and creamy it would be a shame!
Outer: Floral Lace
Lining: Layers of tulle/Likely Synthetic
*ERA: Mid-Late 1950s
