1950s Madeleine Fauth Silk Print Dress

A stunning floral printed silk dress by Madeleine Fauth is like a breath of fresh air. It is constructed out of that fine scarf weight silk that is just the best quality possible! The front and back neckline have a subtle scoop and the bodice tapers to a nipped in waist. The skirt is very full and has a built in hip underskirt that is tightly pleated so it adds extra shape! It is photographed here with an additional light crinoline added but even without is very full. The exterior waist has this incredible tiny, rounded pleat detail all the way around that both give the wearer shape and also allow the skirt to be very full once these pleats release. I love the pops of cherry red against the deep blue and white! A stunner and in excellent condition.

Unlined with an attached stiffened top hip detailing. Note that the hem of the skirt looks to have been cut at some point and is pressed to hem but the under-edge is raw. I am leaving it as is in case the buyer needs the full length it is now. The original belt is included and is in excellent condition. Closes with a back painted metal zipper.
