Vintage 1953 Graduation Dress
Peach Satin and Lace
Description: Fantastic handcrafted 50s party/prom dress in lovely peach satin and matching lace! It was originally made for a young lady's Graduation in 1953! It even has the original sleeve gloves fashioned from matching material. There is no size tag so please see measurements below to ensure a proper fit. It measures small.
Features of this sensational sleeveless dress include an off-the-shoulder cape of peach satin style fabric with ruching and a vertical strip which creates a faux bow in the center, sheer light peach colored netting on the upper bodice with single metal hook and thread eye in the back for closure, inverted V along the waistline, and a full skirt with attached satin ruffle and matching satin band. The bodice features an overlay of peach lace with a metal side zipper for closure.
A matching set of peach satin glove sleeves is also included! Some photos are shown with a crinoline underneath which is not included.
Measurements: Shoulder to shoulder 15 1/2 inches, Underarm to Underarm 18 inches, Bust 34, Shoulder to waist 16 1/2 inches, Side of waist to side of waist 14 inches, Hips are rather full, and Back of neck to bottom hem 45 inches.
This fabulous dress is in very good condition with no rips, holes or tears. There are several spot/stains on the bottom ruffle, however.....some appear to be water spots, some are small spots, some are little lines...but most are rather light. They may come out with a proper dry cleaning but I cannot be sure. There is a slight open area next to the end of the closed zipper which will need a few stitches to fix.......There are also some areas of the lace with tea colored stains. They are mostly on the back of the bodice. All these spots and stains may come out with a proper dry cleaning but I cannot be sure. ....The gloves also have teeny spots and splotches that may come out with a proper cleaning. One glove has a few loose stitches at the end in the back.
