Pab Lilac Purple Rhinestone Beaded Satin Shelf Bust Party Dress, 1950s


In this gorgeous 1950's "Pab" designer lilac-purple 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 detailed with beadwork & rhinestones. The bodice is an elegant thin-straps plunge with a petal shelf-bust. I love the side pleated full circle-skirt design which channels the perfect "New Look" silhouette. Stylish, feminine luxury that will never go out of style. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:44 inches This vintage designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
