1950s Coral Pink Knit Dress


Vintage 1950s coral pink knit dress. Hand-knitted by the original owner. Fab mid-century details~rolled collar, little button placket, cuffed sleeves and belted waist. Really beautifully made- the skirt is seamless at the sides and the construction at the shoulders makes for a sleek fit. A smaller stitch is used on the collar, cuffs, button placket and belt and it gives the dress a really high end feel. The belt is backed in matching grosgrain fabric- completely hand-stitched. All in all a beautiful work of craftsmanship. The sexy silhouette and playful color = perfection! Knit feels like a rayon, probably not wool. Excellent condition with no flaws. Clean fresh & ready to wear. Color most accurate in the first photo, more pink than orange.

Flat Measurements~ Shoulders 14" Chest 17" Waist 14" Hip 17" Length 41" Length shoulder to waist 16" Armscye 9". These are the unstretched measurements~knit is very stretchy.  Shown on a US size 4 mannequin with a 33" chest 26" waist and 34" hip.
