1950s Pure Silk Mellor Leaf Print Shawl Collar Wiggle Dress
The quality of the silk on this late 1950s Mellor dress has to be felt to be believed. It's a gorgeous weight, Italian silk charmeuse.
The print is vibrant with leaves in yellow, gold, copper, teal and green shades and has flattering princess seams. She is fully interlined in black with a side zip fastening and a shawl collar overlay.
Joan from Mad Men would slay in this baby!
Immaculate. No notable flaws.
