1950s Sheer Bubble Print Party Dress
This is a fabulous original 1950s chiffon dress with a fun but sophisticated polkadot print in navy blue on white. The spots make us think of drifty bubbles, all different sizes.
This frock is so easy to wear: delicate and floaty but with beautiful shaping through the bodice. There's a cross over/wrap bustline, sweet cap sleeves, and a wonderfully flattering mid panel.
The dress has been shown with a slip, which is not included: you'll probably want one too, as it's very sheer.
Lovely condition: while the fabric looks dainty, it is sturdy and wearable, not fragile. There is some light bobbling to centre waist band, not visible when worn.
