1950s Green Brocade Pocket Front Day Dress

A pretty 1950s day dress in an unusual palette of green, blue and copper. These are set in rows that cover the dress from shoulder to hem and the effect is just lovely! The bodice skims the torso and has lovely little top set pockets! I just love that little detail! The waist nips in and the skirt is slightly full and set into the waist with pretty pleats. You could add a light crinoline for more fullness but we have photoed it without! a great and wearable day piece that is in excellent condition.

Unlined and closes at the front with buttons and has hidden snaps under the waist line. Note that the bottom button was replaced at some point with a button slightly darker then the brown ones above.
