This 1950s dress is perfect for a holiday party or Valentine’s Day date, in bright red velveteen (cotton velvet) with a fitted bodice and full skirt. The scoop neck bodice has the tiniest of cap sleeves and is shaped with darts. The skirt flares from waist seam to hem, with small pleats, front and back, to add fullness. (It is shown here with a crinoline underneath, which is not included—although we do have some available for sale if you are interested—just ask!) The soft cotton velvet is unlined and medium-weight, not too heavy or stiff. The dress fastens with a metal zipper in the left side seam. This classic, lipstick red 50s party dress is in excellent condition.
