This rare, one-of-a-kind vintage 1950s ruffled tulle cupcake gown is so beautiful you might think it only exists in your dreams— it is a completely unique choice for a vintage bridal moment, or for any special occasion. The entire tulle dress is blanketed in delicate ruffles, each of which is trimmed in satin, allowing the design to really pop. Gloriously ruffled shoulders mirror this same effect. The bodice is fully lined and fitted, to offset the fullness of the skirt. The shoulder has a bit of hidden elastic, making the placement very secure— it's possible to wear this more off-the-shoulder, or properly sitting on the shoulder like a scoop-neck, as pictured here. The skirt is crafted of two layers to tulle, and there is a bit of flirty sheerness without being too sheer. It is pictured with an additional crinoline petticoat worn under; please contact me if you are interested in purchasing a vintage petticoat. I also love it with well-chosen briefs or vintage lingerie intentionally showing from under. It fastens with hooks down the front, echoing those coquettish lingerie-inspired details. NOTE: it is possible to wear this dress back-to-front, with the hook fastenings in the front, for a corset-like look. 

The Vintage Pearl Tassel Earrings pictured are also available.

Measurements: This will best fit a size X-Small, and can be let out in some places to make it larger; please refer to the below measurements. 
Chest: 32" (keep in mind it's meant to have a corset-like bodice and suck you in)
Waist: 23.5" laid flat, perhaps up to 24" pulled taut (It could be made larger by moving the hook closures out, or taking out the princess seams and darts in the bodice.)
Hips are open
Length: 62" from shoulder to hem; 50" down center front

 

Great vintage condition, with minor wear commensurate with age. There have been some minor seam repairs made, and there is some very light, minor discoloration at the hem, as is to be expected with white dresses that have been worn. Overall, it presents beautifully and none of these minor notes are visible when worn. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
