125.00

Delicate, feminine, and designed for twirling, this darling number is a 1950s prom dress dream come true . . .

I invite you to scroll down to see images of the 1950s Sequin, Tulle, and Taffeta Party Dress in greater detail.

Inspired by: Grace Kelly.

Circa: 1950s.

Materials: Taffeta and a synthetic overlay, perhaps nylon or polyester, with sequin and beading detail on the bodice. There is also a layer of tulle under the taffeta skirt.

Colors: Soft pink underlay with baby blue overlay.

Closures: Single back zipper with a hook-and-eye closure.

Label: Handmade, no label.

Measurements:

  • Bust: 32"
  • Waist: 24"
  • Length: 47"

Condition: Very Good.

Interested in learning about how we rate and measure?

Of Note:

  • The structured, boned bodice, with narrow waist, and full skirt (you could also add a crinoline to really fill it out), create a quintessential 1950s look.
  • Two lovely trails of fabric lead off the back shoulder area, where the sleeve hem meets the bodice.
  • There is the slightest staining under each arm, but it is extremely hard to notice when not looking for it and perhaps even tougher to notice when worn.
  • The baby blue overlay has little nicks throughout. Given the way it drapes over the pale pink taffeta, they are not too noticeable when worn.
  • The edges of the back trains are unfinished.

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears.

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your item(s).

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.).
