1950s Reindeer Embroidery Halter Dress

Vavoom! This little navy cotton dress is the stuff femme fatale are renowned for! It is a spectacular little dress that has a pretty machine embroidered pattern of reindeer, people, tree and pretty designs done in horizontal bands across the dress from top to bottom. The silhouette is pure bombshell with a nipped in waist, sexy halter top and barely there back. The skirt is classic wiggle and cut to follow every curve. I love the huge front pockets that are cut to sit out for the dress and further emphasize the hourglass shape! It is darling and perfect for resort and summer! Excellent condition

Bust: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam, prob not suitable for more than a B cup
Waist: 12.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam

The dress is fully lined in a light cotton through the top only, the skirt is left unlined. It closes with aback metal zipper. There is slight yellowing to the lining in spots but it does not detract of course since it is inside. Occasional broken thread in the embroidery.
