Vintage 1950s Day Dress / Blue Silk
Gorgeous 1950s aqua blue dupioni silk wiggle dress! Wrap style bodice buttons with a single center covered button and a hidden set of snaps and hook/eye clasps. Snaps at side hip. Short sleeves. Belt fastens over bodice button and wraps around to tie in back or wrap it again to tie in front as shown. Bodice is lined in matching aqua rayon. Skirt is unlined. There is no stretch to this fabric and the waist measurement is key for proper fit. In excellent condition apart from one faint tiny spot and very slight fade on the sleeve edges, see last photo.
