1950's Elegant Mauve-Pink Satin & Beaded Ice-Blue Velvet Strapless Party Dress

About

In this gorgeous 1950's "Florence M. Schmeltzer" designer mauve-pink and ice-blue party dress,the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern couture. This enchanting garment is fashioned from shimmer silk-satin lined with rich organza. The bodice is a breathtaking beaded and sequin ice-blue velvet strapless with full corset-boning. I love the cummerbund sash nipped-waist and full pleated circle-skirt design which channels the perfect "New Look" silhouette. Stylish, feminine luxury that will never go out of style! Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:Free Sweep Length top to waist:9.5 inches Length waist to hem:30 inches This vintage "Florence M. Schmeltzer" designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper and bodice boning. Shown with petticoat which is not included. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
