ANOTHER AUSSIE FIND – TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S ILLUSION PARTY DRESS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACouldn’t wait to get this home, where Madge or Stella (my mannequin models) could show it properly – this sheer, custom-tailored frock is a great example of a popular style of the 1950’s.  It’s a dressy style, with metallic gold leaves printed on beige illusion fabric.  I think that Grace Kelly wore a similar dress in the movie “High Society” from the early 1950’s.

This example is a pull-over design, with no zipper or buttons.  Cowl neckline in front and a dropped waist, with below-the-knee hemline.

Of course, a silky sheath or plain, tailored slip in a matching tone has to be worn underneath.  Tomorrow I’ll show you ANOTHER find that is a perfect example of a lingerie garment made exactly for this purpose.  The fascinating discoveries just never end . . . .
