27 Vintage Dresses of February #8

We are in awe of this 1950's strapless number in gold, no less. It's available from VFG member Tasty Vintage.

Just amazing, this dress is beautifully constructed with a handset zipper, bound seams and handstitched silk lining. the fabric also feels like a silk blend - there are no labels other than the one referring to the fabric (handwoven in Madrid) but you get the feeling that this is a dress that was very expensive when originally ordered!

It zips at the rear with a concealed metal zip, and the peplum fastens around the waist with hooks and eyes. You could move the hooks if needed to give you a little extra room without it looking odd. The peplum itself is actually quite a thing to behold, stiffened fabric and lined in a silky green fabric. It's just wonderful, and quite futuristic looking!
