1950s Kerrybrooke Floral Lattice Detail Party Dress
This lovely 50's party frock has such a chic, ladylike personality. She's made from whisper-light cotton blend voile in a sophisticated black and white floral print. We love the flattering lattice boatneck, short sleeves, and bodice darts to the front and the back. And there are POCKETS! This is not a drill! The neck and pockets are trimmed in soft black velvet, with co-ordinating piping on waistband. The dress closes with a back metal zip fastening and two hook and eye fastenings on the lattice neckband. It is marked Kerrybrooke Sears.
This dress is semi-sheer, so you might want to pop a slip underneath for modesty. We've also photographed it with and without a petticoat: this listing doesn't include one but you can find our selection here.
Some wear/balding to the velvet trim commensurate with age, does not detract from the beauty of the piece. Otherwise immaculate.
