A stunning red taffeta cocktail dress from the 1950s has so many lovely details. The color is a bit truer of a red than what is being portrayed. The fabric has that nice bit of sheen good taffeta has and it makes that girlish swish sound when you move. I love the detailed seaming through the bust and how it all points in towards the centre of the waist so the eye sees an even tinier waistline. The dress has a panel inset of cotton velvet in the exact same shade of red that runs through the bodice and all the way down the front of the skirt. The back is cut so the fullness seems to spring out form the small of the back. It has been photoed with an additional crinoline under it (not included) but does have a built inn underskirt so is very full on its own. I love this dress and so will the lucky girl who buys it!
