1950s Coral Emma Domb Rose Dress

What a stunner! This is that holy grail type dress for my fifties and sixties vixens! Made by Emma Domb and out of a coral hued cotton velvet, it is cut classic body hugging, curve creating wiggle style. A curved neckline sits atop a fitted bodice that nips in at the waist. The back is also scooped and the shoulder straps are cut to sit wide so you get a peek of collarbone. The skirt skims over the hips and is cut pencil style. The hemline is of course where you really stop and take notice - it is ringed in huge matching fabric rosettes that go all the way around! The color is slightly paler and has a more pink undertone that how it photoed. You also get a rich extra bit of texture due to that gorgeous velvet fabric that is not properly conveyed in my photos either - if you love the pictures you will love it more in person! An exceptional vintage dress. Excellent condition
