1950s Paul Sachs Dress w Silk Overskirt

This is one of those amazing 1950s pieces that make you wonder why more designers are not doing this type of silhouette now! The under-dress is a simple, chic sheath with a nipped in waist. The front bodice has an inset triangle that is set to make that high inverted, curved neck that was so in vogue at the time. The shoulders are rounded and the sleeves to the elbow. The sleekness of the top carries down and through to the slim pencil skirt. Snaps are set all around the waistline and that fantastic full, almost bubble shaped over-skirt snaps into place. The shape this makes has a sculptural feel and in reminiscent of what Balenciaga was doing at the time. Because the over skirt comes off you could add a slim belt to cover the snaps and end up with two dresses in one! Excellent condition
