Sweet Disorder Vintage

1950s Documented Blue Silk Midi Dress


Breathtaking royal blue silk midi dress circa 1955. All of the high femme elegance of the 1950s with a super nipped waist. The bodice is beautifully tailored for a subtly pointed bust and tiny waist. The skirt is cartridge pleated where it joins the bodice and this gives it tons of gorgeous volume at the hem. The built in crinoline creates the iconic silhouette. Demure bow and removable ivory satin collar complete the perfection. Hidden zip in the front of the dress and inner waist tape with a hook & eye closure for a perfect fit. The lush blue silk rustles softly with your every move. Such an iconic beauty!
