Pretty 1950s Purple Embroidered Netted Lace Floral Wiggle Dress

This is a very pretty little dress from the 1950s that is a bot unusual with its bright purple color. It is made out of a netted lace type fabric and the pattern forms flowers that cover the entire dress. I love the pattern it forms and the pretty secondary patterns created by being set so closely together. The top layer is also set over an inner purple lining and this gives it a bit of depth. The front neckline is set fairly straight across and the back scoops down as well. It is cut to fit and accent your curves in that very va-voom fifties kind of way. It's a true wiggle dress with no vent set into the skirt to help when you walk it actually narrows down as it reaches the hem. Excellent condition

Fully lined in purple rayon and closes with a back metal zipper. In person it is a more true primary purple tine then how it photoed.
