1950s Vintage Red and Taupe Floral Print Day Dress

$89.00 USD

Lovely mid 1950s New Look day dress in dark red and taupe floral print rayon acetate. It has a fitted pleated waist and cap sleeves.  Front pockets, and the left pocket is embellished with a velvet heart, pink roses and prong-set rhinestones. Bodice lined in light muslin, skirt is not lined.  Back metal zipper. Some flowers are dotted with hand-painted white detail. Dress is in excellent condition, although the flowers could be perked up a bit with a steamer.  

Fabulous vintage tag inside reads For the Good Times by Lu-Dev's. Hand written on the tag is the year 1954, size 12, and the stock number. 

This has a vintage size 12 tag but the dress is shown on a modern US size 8 dress form (35"/26.5"/36.9") and it was somewhat difficult to get on past the form's shoulders. There is no stretch to this fabric. This is best fit for a size 8 or smaller based on garment measurements. Please refer to the garment measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate. 

Bust - 36 inches (91.44 cm)
