Original vintage 1950s rose printed tulle ballgown dress in orange autumn tones.
This is a spectacular dress in the most beautiful shades of rust and burnt orange with a deep green and peach tulle. A fairytale gown designed with a gathered strapless bodice, ruched satin waistband and a very full five layer ballgown skirt complete with hoops for structure.
Inside you can see all the workings of the dress, I am not sure if there would have been an original lining which has now been removed or a separate under dress as is sometimes the case with couture dresses. It is beautifully made.
Style with the simplest of sandals and matching drop earrings, less is definitely more with this gown which will do all the talking.
