Exquisite 1950s 50s Demi Couture Floral Watercolor Vintage Silk Dress w/ Sequins

About

This is one of my favorite 1950s dresses EVER!!! Demi Couture, with hand sewn finishings, and hand-sewn sequins. Divine silk, with an exceptional floral watercolor print. Sequins adorned on the front petal of the skirt. Attached crinoline under skirt, for a true full skirt. Royal blue silk velvet waistband. Super flattering fit. Though no labels remain, this is a highly well constructed dress, that looks to be Werle, Dior, or possibly Ceil Chapman. Full metal zipper up the back, with hook-and-eye closure at top back neck. Features pockets at both sides of waist. Fully lined in silk. In great condition. Approximately Size Small Measurements: 34-36 inch bust 26 inch waist Free hips 40 inches from top shoulder to hem
