Ultra Rare, 1950s, 'Miss London' Prom Style Dress Miss London, Made In Mayfair - Size: 12 - Multi-coloured - Prom dress

£65.00

Product description

Twirl the night away in this candy striped dream-of-a-dress by 'Miss London Made In Mayfair', circa 1950s and size 12 stated on the label. Exquisitely handmade from lilac and white heavy satin fabric, featuring a wide ruched waistband, plastic boning to the bodice, bust darts, spaghetti straps and a concealed zip fastening to the back. Best of all though is the sewn-in stiffened petticoat with frill detailing at the hem, ensuring maximum 'WOW' factor and the fullest of full skirts!! In good vintage condition although the straps have been quite clumsily adjusted and there's some staining here and there (see photos) but it's nothing that some tender loving care won't fix. A guaranteed head turner!!

Dry clean only.
