SOLD 50s Horrockses Flower Print Evening Dress (UK6-8)SOLD

125.00 
vintage archive - sold items
A stunningly beautiful dress in a soft silky rayon material oozing glamour. The flower print is large and bold and yet the yellow and cream colours are soft. The bodice is double layered and the material ruched all around but it is also boned giving it great structure. Side metal zip. The skirt has additional sashes hanging down from the front and back waistband: two short and one long, almost to the floor, sash from the left hip. The sash at the neck goes across the chest and hangs from one shoulder only, falling gracefully at the back then under the right arm and back to the front of the bodice.

A dress of this age will inevitably have some damage and there are indeed markings at the hemline of the dress and the long sash not immediately noticeable as they are at the very bottom of the dress. There is a more significant hole at the bottom of the skirt at the front and a smaller one at the back. It may well be that shortening the hemline would remedy the situation. There are also a couple of tacks but which are slight and could easily be unpicked/ adjusted. The dress comes up small in the waist (size 6-8) compared to the bust.

The price does reflect these defects - this is still a spectacular example of 50s glamour from a brand that was renowned for style and quality.
