1950s Adele Simpson Pink Cotton Dress w Hand Applique Cording Detail

About

This Adele Simpson dress is rather exceptional. It is made out of a pale pink cotton that in person is an even prettier shade of pink then how the camera captured it. It is sleeveless and the neckline is scooped at both the front and back of the dress. The waist nips in just below the bust line and then the skirt flares out from there and is very full. I have shows in styled over a light crinoline and you can just as easily wear it without one and get more movement, or even wear one that is more full then the one I used and get a real 'cupcake' effect. Over the dress is a piped and puffed pink cording made in the same fabric. This is all hand applied in the wonderful curving abstract design that you see covering the dress. This gives it lots of texture and detailing. It would work for day or evening. These earlier dresses are getting so hard to find and this one is quite exceptional and a wonderful example of her early work. Excellent condition The bodice is lined with the same pink cotton and the rest of the dress is unlined. It closes with an inset side metal zipper. Hand finished throughout. Styled with a light crinoline underneath that is not included. Note that in person the pink is a more pastel baby pink Bust: 19" flat across the back from side seam to side seam Waist: 14" flat across the back from side seam to side seam Hips: open Length: 43" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
