1950s Metallic Red & Gold Cocktail Dress

This is a fantastic little dress. It is constructed from a light silk brocade in shades of pink and red with a subtle bit of green worked through to create the feel of a lovely watercolor of flowers. A gold thread is worked through the fabric so it has a wonderful sheen to it. The skirt is not too full nor too slim, I have put a very light crinoline under it to show you the fullness it does have (not included). The top is fitted and has the prettiest rounded cap sleeves. A pretty flat bow sits daintily at the small of the back. A really lovely dress! Excellent condition. Item# E430
