1950's Lilli Diamond Green & Silver Shelf-Bust Halter Applique Peplum Dress

About

An amazing and highly stylized 1950's cocktail sundress by Lilli Diamond. The silhouette is classic pin-up "femme fatale"; the skirt is deliciously lean! The bodice is ultra chic with a low-cut plunge ruffle shelf-bust halter. My favorite part is the seductive appliqued peplum which really catches the eye! The nipped-waist flatters the waistline. The unique green & silver-gray color combination will turn any woman into a starlet. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today.

Measurements
Bust:32-33 inches
Waist:24 inches
Hips:35 inches
Total Length:44 inches

This vintage designer cocktail sundress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
