Original 1950s 50s Green Taffeta Dress With Blue Flowers With Underskirt
This wonderful dress was made from a green taffeta with iconic blue Monet style flowers in the 1950s. It features a classic mid century shape with its wide flared A line skirt supported by a built in underskirt. To accommodate the extra volume the skirt has a pleat at the centre front of the front. It also retains its original metal zipper at the back with a hook and eye fastening at the neckline.
This item is in very good condition with only a loose eye of the hook and eye.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
