40s/50s Periwinkle Blue Taffeta Party Dress - med

UGS : 00856-001

From the New Look era of the late 1940s and early 1950s, a swoon-worthy party dress in periwinkle blue taffeta.

  • gorgeous, slightly iridescent, periwinkle (purplish blue) changeable taffeta 
  • crumb-catcher portrait collar over short, cap sleeves
  • unlined bodice has horizontal bust seam and princess seams to accentuate and flatter your curves
  • drop waist dips very low at back
  • bows  in back, at top of metal back zipper and at bottom of pointed, drop-waist detail
  • nearly-a-full-circle skirt to wear with or without a crinoline (ours as shown is not included) has separate lining
  • Perfect for prom, quinceanera, a wedding-related event (it's something old, new to you, and something blue), or any special occasion

Labels: only a style/size tag remains

Fiber/Care: no tags, feels like an acetate blend, crisp and cool / dry-cleaning recommended just to be safe

Condition: Came to us with an older dry-cleaning tag attached (we removed it), but has acquired scattered age spots in the interim (see photo collage). These are only noticeable under the bright lights, and really, no one will be searching for tiny flaws in the folds of the fabric when you're wearing this dress! Spots may lift with cleaning, but we make no guarantees. Presents beautifully. You will not be disappointed.
