1950s Lace Wiggle Pin Up Dress w Train

It is rare that you see a design that is so unusual it seems like you have not seen it done quite that way before! This dress meets that criteria and is impossibly beautiful as well. If you love it in the pictures you will die when you see it in person. It is labeled a Marusia Original and is a dress fit for a pin-up queen! The main dress has a simple, boned bodice and lean fitted pencil skirt. The lace has been highlighted with glossy black sequins and trails of jet glass tube beads all over the entire surface. Over that is a remarkable silk hip piece that is a combination peplum and asymmetrical train of fabric - it wraps and is attached around the hips and is hand draped into place. From there it wraps around to the back and then dramatically drapes to the floor in a side train-like fashion that is extreme and utterly fabulous. Pretty black silk straps sit atop each shoulder. Lots of hand finishes and impeccably seamed. Excellent condition!

The dress is lightly boned through the bodice and fully lined in black silky rayon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper.
