Somebody attempted to dye this dress and it has come out in a very pretty marbled look in rose pink and pale gold.
Mid-calf length satin dance dress has V neck with a narrow collar. The front has a centre placket to display a row of sensational faceted crystal buttons encased in gold. The dress has a slight dropped shoulder with cap sleeve. The waistline is V shaped at the front. The full skirt is gathered into the waist and there is a matching tie. Closes at the side with a metal zipper. Fabric is rayon satin. There are no tags - 1950s.
Bust 81 cm (32")
Waist 64 cm (25")
Back 35.5 cm (14")
Shoulder to waist 42 cm (16.5")
Length 108 cm (42.5")
Good, if you like the marbled effect. There is a copper coloured mark on one hip, probably the reason for the dying in the first place. It blends in quite nicely, as shown. A few minor scuffs on the satin.
