This late 1950s or early 1960s cocktail dress in fuchsia floral silk satin is beautifully made! The gorgeous silk is fully lined with hot pink silk organza. The cap sleeve, fitted bodice has a deeply V’ed neckline with two small lapels and bust darts for shaping. A wide, inset waist panel is pleated/darted diagonally at the center front and trimmed with a decorative bow—giving the illusion that the bow is cinching the underbust/waist. The full skirt is gathered into the waist seem with flat pleats. Flatteringly, the center front and center back sections of the skirt are not pleated. The dress fastens in back with a metal zipper. Underneath, the original owner has attached a black elastic waist cincher (vintage, not modern). There is also an attached, single layer crinoline of hot pink tulle. The dress is shown with an additional, more full crinoline underneath, which is not included. The dress looks good both with and without the added crinoline—see the close-up back view of the skirt for the shape without an added crinoline. In excellent condition, this hot pink, autumnal floral, 1950s or early 60s party dress is a true vintage classic!
