Adorable pink dance dress c.1950 was originally my aunt’s wedding dress, later dyed & altered for use as a dance dress. The dress is being sold with it’s original slip & the fingerless lace gloves worn by the bride. See my blog article about restoring this dress at: https://louisaameliajane.com.au/blogs/news/my-aunts-1950-wedding-dress The pink rayon dress has a slightly dropped waist, a very full skirt, circular yoke & a cotton lace bodice, with lace extending into an edging to the cap sleeves. The back bodice features a row of tiny pearl buttons & rouleau loops. It closes at the side with hooks & eyes. The original slip is rayon, fitted at the bodice, with shoestring straps & full skirt. It closes at the side with press studs. The fingerless lace gloves are cotton. No labels – all items custom made. After her wedding my aunt had the dress shortened, the sleeves removed, & had it dyed pink. Size – Extra small Bust 76 cm (30) Waist 61 cm (24) Hips free Length 122 cm (48″) Fair to good condition. The color is a bit patchy where it has been dyed – the cotton lace took the dye very well & is very pink. The rayon skirt is more of a peach color, with some streakiness. I have replaced the entire yoke & reattached the lace & buttons. There are numerous small holes & marks on the skirt, mostly lost in the fullness of the skirt when worn. 1-2 small holes in the slip. The color in the gloves is also a little uneven.
