French Couture 1950s Red Silk Butterfly Print Evening Dress With Bow Uk Size 4-6

Hurry! Only 1 available
+ -


This opulent 1950s French couture silk satin evening dress by Perrine has exquisite construction and is of superb quality. The luxurious red satin overlay has an unusual butterfly wing print and is beautifully tailored to ensure drama and movement when worn. The sweetheart shaped neckline is supported by 1" straps in matching fabric, with sunburst pleats and diagonal bow at the centre front. The overlay is gathered into neat pleats at the front of the dress from a single point beneath the bow and stitched to the bodice as they extend outwards, softening into the line of the skirt. The mid-calf length skirt has a silk taffeta underlay in olive green with netting to create volume, whereby the overlay is arranged into a wrap-around effect . An inward facing pleat at the centre reverse below the waistline enhances the shape of the skirt with a modest tail. The silhouette is something special. In excellent condition, this garment is petite and would best suit US size 0-2, UK size 4-6.
