1950s Emma Domb Chiffon Net Dress

This Emma Domb dress is just so pretty and quite sexy too! A stunning early example of the kind of dreamy dresses the company made. It is somewhat deceptive in that at first  glance you think it has a rather full skirt, but it is actually quite fitted and the fullness is from a partial skirt of fabric set along each hip and around the back. The actual skirt of the dress is very fitted and the fabric over it is draped in soft curved - a lovely contrast the fuller half skirt that surrounds it. This is a particularly flattering cut and really evokes that old Hollywood feel. The bodice is very pretty with gathered fabric and a lovely halter style strap that sweep up and around the neck. At the bust you see a peep of nude cotton lace interspersed with rhinestones peaking through the chiffon It is really wonderful and on a real girl really comes to life! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a white silky rayon and the inner edges are ribbon finished. The skirt has an additional tulle lining built in. Light boning through the bodice. Closes with a back, painted metal zipper.
