Vintage Harrods 1950s Burgundy Silk Jersey Dress With Pleated Bodice

About

This gorgeous 1950s vintage Harrods boutique dress in deep burgundy showcases some exquisite tailoring with unique pleating on the bodice and sleeves. The simple line of the dress with its soft scoop neckline and cap sleeves is juxtaposed with elaborate, finely gathered pleats. Arranged in diagonal panels that cross above the waistline to flatter the bust, these travel around the reverse of the dress culminating in an attractive pleated band at the mid back. The fabric to the front left of the waistline is gathered slightly to create fluidity between the bodice and the gently flared calf length skirt. A rectangular train of fabric falls from the waistline at the centre reverse to excite subtle movement when worn. There is a central zip fastening at the reverse and the dress is fully lined. This piece presents beautifully and is in superb condition. Would best suit US size 2-4, UK 6-8.
