1950s Silk Chiffon Beautiful Floral Dress

This is a fantastic little dress and a bright and colorful one as well! It was meticulously made and I was shocked that it did not have a designer label in it as it seems that it should! The silk chiffon exterior has been beautifully screened with a gorgeous and bright floral print. This type of silk really holds color superbly and this glorious, huge floral print on this confirms that! It has an inner bodice over which a looser fitting, more draped exterior is placed. This inner bodice is covered int he same fabric so you get an interesting depth to the pattern through the top.  It blouse gently above the waist and I love the delicate little bows that sit atop each shoulder. The waist nips in and then the skirt is soft and full with pleating around the waist. A really lovely dress. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a cream silky rayon and closes with a painted metal zipper. A button at the back of the neck.One small stitch repair to the silk near one arm.
