 A very nice quality dress in a salmon pink, with (I think silk) chiffon ruched bodice, and sleeves which can be worn on or off the shoulder.  I wouldn't normally pick a dress like this up from a rail as it would be damaged and make me sad, but miraculously this had been worn once and stored before I bought it from the original owner's granddaughter, and I didn't put it out on the shop floor!

Bright beadwork to the neckline is all intact, and it fastens to the rear with a concealed metal zip. I'd date it to late 50s or perhaps very early 1960s. It would look better on a slightly curvier model, as it's a little too big and I didn't clip it much as I didn't want to snag the chiffon.

It's very nicely finished, with internal grosgrain waistband, boned bust, and nicely hand-stitched hems.

Measures: I'd say a modern UK 10 or petite 12

Bust 34" plus additional cup room

Waist 28" max

Hips 42" max

Length approx 41" from shoulder to hem. 

 

Condition: 

- small spot to back by zip, and tiny snag (see photo)

Aside from that very good, no missing beadwork. Immediately wearable.
