1950s Party Dress Green Organza by Kay Selig / 50s Green Lace Evening Dress Empire Waist Dress Designer Prom Bridesmaid / XS Teen Juniors
Mid-century evening dress with a low, scoop neckline and capped sleeves, above the empire waistline it is all in rich, deep green lace, while the wide waistband and the voluminous, circle skirt are in sheer, iridescent green organza. There is a copper satin lining at torso and skirt, giving the skirt in particular some layering and color dimension. There is also a layer of stiff, white crinoline for structure and flare. Rear center has a large bow in matching, green satin, over the zippered closure. No tags.
Condition: very good and more than wearable for a frock that is almost three-generations old, but with two small issues: the bottom right front of the sheer organza skirt section has a few, very tiny holes and the waistband area at front left shows a few surface scratches. None of this is visible when worn and must be pointed out in direct, bright light to notice.
