1950s Blue Print Draped Silk Wiggle Dress

What a beauty! In person this present as a more white and turquoise print with no tinge of yellowing to the fabric at all - that is a trick of the light when it was photoed! The cut is divine with a fitted silhouette and the kind of detailing to the shoulders and neckline that make a vintage lover swoon. All the seams are set vertically and it is these seams that give the dress its shape. This used much more fabric then a conventional dress so even though it has no label that is a great clue that it is a potential designer piece. One wide fabric strap curves over the right shoulder and the other slants up from the bodice giving it a one shoulder effect and then a wonderful draped panel of fabric is attached and adds a gorgeous element! Really pretty and feminine! Excellent condition.
