1950s Sequin Pat Sandler Vixen Dress

Vavoom! What a bombshell of a dress! A beautiful china feel white and blue print cotton voile has beautiful blooms in blue screened onto it. Then each flowers edge has been detailed with a tiny row of sequins in an iridescent blue to follow the design. The cut is deliberately done to follow every curve and maximize a girls assets! The waist is set high and curves up and under the bust and the skirt is cut to fit. The bodice is amazing with an interior cup over which those peaked panels wing out dramatically to the side. Fine piped straps in the same fabric highlight cleavage as they come up from under the center bust line and around the neck. Killer dress!

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: approx 14" from top of bust to waist
Skirt: 29" from waist to hem

Fully lined in a light weight white cotton and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The interior bodice is lightly boned. There is the occasional sequin missing but nothing so bare as to detract. This would normally by priced at about twice this but there is a subtle yellowing to the white base fabric in some areas. It was professionally cleaned, as all our pieces are, and it did get lighter so may approve even more with additional cleaning. Personally I would wear as is and not be bothered about it at all as it is very even and very light. However it is a small flaw and the dress is now priced accordingly and a steal!
