There are pictures of dresses by this designer in both the Victoria and Albert Museum , and Manchester City Gallery's fashion collections, and, looking at this item it's easy to see why. Beautifully made, it was, in its time, right at the cutting edge of fashion.
The construction is fifties, but the design is edging towards the sixties with a shorter skirt and yoked neck. The fabric likewise straddles the decades: it has a lovely silky feel and has a bold flower design on a dull purple ground.
The dress is made in eight panels, with a fitted bodice and flaring, flippy skirt. It has a round neck with little poppa'd tags to hide your straps and is sleeveless. It fastens at the back with a long (20 inch) metal zip and hook and eye. It's designed to show off your figure!
In excellent condition, it's fully lined, with internal seams overlocked and a good two inches of hem which could be let down. Approximate measurements are bust 38 ins/96.5 cms, waist 31 ins/79 cms, hips free, length from back of neck 37 ins/94 cms.
