This warm-toned red cotton velveteen 1950s dress with full skirt has a little extra holiday sparkle: black and clear rhinestone button trim shaped like snowflakes! The sleeveless, scoop-neck bodice is gathered into a seam under the bust, above the decorative “strap” with snowflake trim. (These buttons are “japanned” black enamel over metal, with glued-in, clear stones.) Princess seaming from the ribcage to the hem creates the fit-and-flare silhouette with nipped-in waist and full skirt--shown here with a crinoline, which is not included. The lightweight cotton velveteen fabric is unlined. The dress fastens in back with a metal zipper. In very good condition, it has one tiny spot at the center of the bodice (see close-up photo), but no other issues to note. This red velvet 1950s dress will be perfect for holiday parties!
