1950s Larger Sequin & Pink Skirted Dress

Hard to find larger sized fifties cocktail dress has a strong hint of the burlesque and saloon girls to it. The is a certain sauciness to it don't you agree? The bodice is cut in a style reminiscent of that corseted Maid Marion style with fabric covered buttons running down the front an a pretty curved neckline. Teeny single black sequins are scattered over this on the front and back. The skirt is really the masterpiece of this dress and I am glad they kept the bodice fairly simple so it does not detract form the skirt's glory! Its five full layers of fabric and the middle layer is a shocking Schiaparelli pink silk satin! This gets muted and turns to an undertone after three layers of tulle but shows in full strength when you dance or sit! The top layer is just stunning. Black silk taffeta is fashioned into bowed ribbons that circle the entire skirt and run in rows from top to bottom. Each row is edged and highlighted with glossy black sequins. What a fantastic piece!
