Original Early 1950s 50s Volup Vintage Red Knit Dress with Floral Embroidery
This wonderful dress has been made from a soft cranberry red boucle wool in the 1950s. The bodice is cut with a high neckline, dolman sleeves and has been decorated with a contracting white flower and scrollwork embroidery. The inside of the front bodice is lined and the hem of the bodice is detached from the skirt giving it the appearance of a two piece. A back belt is attached with a button on each side of the waist and there is a concealed rear metal zipper. Two kick pleats adorn the front of the skirt with a further two kick pleats to the back. Inside, the dress is unlined and has retailer’s lot labels.
The garment is in good condition, however there are some small pulled threads which are easily concealed in the knubby textured look of the dress.
