1950s Gorgeous Strapless Checked Full Skirt Dress

What a fantastic fifties day dress! These are getting harder and harder to find and this one is a beauty! It is as feminine and romantic as you could wish for. Done in a soft but crisp polished cotton that is completely covered with a wonderful check pattern that is a mix of a soft pastel turquoise and light chocolate. The skirt is wonderfully full - it was not shot with a full crinoline underneath to give you an idea of just how full it is. It moves wonderfully and you can of course wear it without a crinoline too! The bodice is the same fabric that is shaped and boned into a sweetheart, strapless bust line. Such a romantic touch! ]Really outstanding and just a beautiful dress in every way! Excellent condition.

The bodice is lined in a cotton and is lightly boned. The skirt is unlined. It closes with a painted back metal zipper. Hand finsihed.
