1950s Tiered Lace Coral Dress

Absolutely wonderful 1950s tiered and ruffles lace dress in a peachy coral! This is a really special piece! The color is just breathtaking and the construction and attention to detail in forming all those wonderful tiers is just marvelous. Machine lace is mixed with taffeta ribboning - both gathered in ruffles and then stacked in tiers atop each other to make up that fabulous mid-calf to ankle length skirt. It is quite full and I have styled it with a light crinoline (not included) but it can easily be worn without one and still have fullness. It makes a wonderful whispering rustling sound when you move. The bodice is flat rows of the lace which is then edged with the ruffled taffeta ribbon. Tiny little straps hold it up though you could potentially tuck these and wear this as a strapless piece. The color is a bit deeper and more vibrant than what is showing - it is the epitome of feminine prettiness and a beautiful piece. Excellent condition.
