This vintage 1950s gathered silk chiffon fit and flare dress nothing short of ethereal, with its seafoam color and masterfully draped chiffon, evoking images of Greek sculpture. It reminds me of something Brigitte Bardot or Audrey Hepburn would have worn in the 1950s. The bateau neckline is so elegant and flattering— in this 1950s, this exaggerated bateau was referred to as a "Sabrina" neckline, named for the neckline made famous by Audrey Hepburn in 1954's Sabrina. Edith Head won an Academy Award for the movie's costume design in 1955. It is such a chic vintage bridal option for a "Something Blue," but would really fit a range of occasions. The bodice is fitted and it shape has the effect of lifting the bust up like a corset. It's so beautifully made, with a full bias-cut circle skirt creating gorgeous movement, complete with a hand rolled hand tacked chiffon hem. The dress is fully lined. Fiber contents are not indicated but the main fabric is silk chiffon. Closes with a side zipper.

The Vintage Diamanté Chandelier Earrings pictured are also available.

Measurements: This will best fit a modern size X-Small, but it's possible to let the bodice out a bit to make it larger. Proportions may be best suited for someone petite in stature. Please refer to below measurements to be sure.
Chest: 32" laid flat (with some extra give thanks to darts at chest interior)
Waist: up to 24" worn snug (closer to 22.5" laid flat)
Hips are open
Length: 39.5" from shoulder to hem 

Great vintage condition, with minor wear commensurate with age, including some minor stress to the seams and minor signs of wear, but it presents absolutely beautifully and no issues are visible when worn. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
