1950s Deep Navy Silk Dior Bow Dress

What a beauty! This deep deep navy blue frock is just a knock out! Made of a silk dyed midnight blue it has a pretty and flattering cut. The bodice is fitted and has a darling little side seaming detail. The skirt has a touch of fullness created by deep, soft pleats set on each side. I love the waist detail - a wide swatch of fabric has been formed to create the suggestion of a huge bow that tucks under the waist band and swoops down the front of the skirt! Extremely well made and a wonderful example of Dior! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a blue silk organza and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The attached waist band closes with hook & eye at the back. Wonderfully constructed with hand finishes. The label is the Dior white and Black original label - a photo will be added
