1950s Broderie Anglaise Wiggle Dress


Availability: In stock

Stunning 1950s-60s wiggle dress made from violet coloured rayon with blue broderie anglaise bodice. The dress has short sleeves and a shallow V neckline edged with self fabric piping. A self-covered button and bow highlights the bust-line. This dress is beautifully tailored with darts on the bust and shaping around the natural waist so the skirt just skims the waist and is narrow down over the hips.  A long zip runs below the waist to help with the narrow fit.
