1950s Pretty Raw Silk Black Day Dress

Stunning light weight silk day dress with lots of texture to the silk to create an extra bit of glamour. This is also a nice wearable size and will be extremely flattering on! The dress does up at the front with those silk covered buttons. The skirt is long and lean and is topped by a loose fitting top with a pretty notched front and easy to wear below the elbows, slightly wider sleeve. I love that the waist has a bit of a gathered fabric detail and that pretty silk fabric rose sits in the middle to highlight it - it also cleverly conceals any bits and curves you don't want to highlight! Excellent condition and a really terrific piece!
