suzy perette

1950s Suzy Perette Spring Silk Dress

Made of a stunning printed silk taffeta with a custom design screened onto it. The front has a deep plunge built in sweetheart neckline that extend into straps that go over each shoulder. The waist is nipped in for that perfect hourglass silhouette. The skirt is very full and has a built in underskirt - it is photographed here with an additional light crinoline added but even without is very full. The waist has this incredible tiny pleat detail all the way around that both give the wearer shape and also allow the skirt to be very full once these pleats release. A stunner and in excellent condition.

The bodice is lined with a cotton backing and the skirt has an attached stiffened underskirt. There is the faintest of marks under the arms that are more visible in the inside then the out but because of the print you really really have to look for it specifically - I would say it presents perfectly. The original belt is included. It does have a darkening to the buckle but also present well.Closes with a back painted metal zipper.
