1950s Cut Out Black & Nude Full Skirted Summer Dress

Simple and perfect little fifties black with it's cut outs through which a nude color peeks out, is the perfect soring and summer dress when you want to have that Audrey Hepburn vibe. I love the high boat neck that gives the shoulders such a flattering line. Simple sleeves end just below the elbow and the bodice is fitted and nips in. This combines with the flare of the skirt helps create the illusion of a teeny tiny waistline.  At the back as well there is a sexy little V that dips and exposes the upper back. The skirt flares out and is quite full. I have put a crinoline under it so you can see the fullness, or you can wear it without. Its is very pretty and its cotton lace cut out design makes it unusual and a real find - when up close you see a series of curved open "circles", but from afar these for lines and a more graphic feel. Excellent condition.

Interlined with a nude colored silky rayon. It closes with a side, painted metal zipper. The crinoline it is photoed with is not included
