50s

STYLE : Dior’s New Look

On 12 February 1947, Dior launched his first fashion collection for Spring-Summer 1947. The new collection went down in fashion history as the "New Look" after the editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar Carmel Snow's exclamation, "It's such a New Look!"

The silhouette was characterised by a small, nipped-in waist and full skirt which emphasised the bust and hips. At a time of post-war fabric restrictions, Dior used up to twenty yards of extravagant fabrics for his creations. The New Look became extremely popular, its full-skirted silhouette influencing fashion and other designers well into the 1950s, and Dior gained a number of prominent high-profile clients from Hollywood, the United States and the European aristocracy as a result. Paris, which had fallen from its position as the capital of the fashion world after WWII, regained its esteemed position due in part to the attention it gained from Dior's New Look. The New Look was welcomed in Western Europe as a refreshing antidote to the austerity of wartime, and was embraced by stylish women throughout the UK.





REALLY UNUSUAL & VERY BEAUTIFUL 
VINTAGE CORSET DRESS

Wedding ~ 40s War Bride ~ 50s Starlet ~ Swing ~ 
Victorian Vamp ~ Edwardian Mistress

Such a stunning and unusual vintage piece, this classic white corset dress in a beautifully soft cotton fabric is simply stunning! Timeless with reflections of the 1940s and 50s and yet also has more than a touch of the Victorian Vamp or Edwardian Mistress about it...

Original date unknown (true vintage, possibly from the late 40s/50s and through to the 70s) this dress is cut in the most beautiful shape which really epitomises the look of the 40s/50s eras and is so reminiscent of Dior’s celebrated ‘New Look’ ~ characterised by the defined waist and fuller skirt designed to emphasise the figure ~  this is a piece you’ll love to wear.

The pretty collar and open plunge neckline, wide lightly padded shoulders, flattering front seaming and gorgeous ¾ length sleeves give this dress such a chic shape that’s typical of 40s styling. But what really sets this white wonder apart is the stunning corset waist ~ framed by gentle ruching which leads up to the bust and down to the skirt, this fabulously flattering front panel features a double row of silver coloured eyelets and white lacing that accentuates the waist and creates such a timeless hour-glass silhouette ~ chic, classy and so stylish! The beautiful full skirt falls into flowing loose folds to form another incredibly flattering shape which  will flare out fabulously as you dance and swish ~ again perfectly defining that classic 40s/50s shape.

The same superb tailoring extends to the back of the dress, with an understated but lovely yoke panel to define the back and shoulders, while a discreet centre zip runs from beneath the yoke to just beyond the waist panel.

Finished in a beautiful matt smooth cotton (with a very gorgeous tactile smooth finish so might be a slight blend), it feels soft to the touch...in pure white which is so versatile, classic and effortlessly flattering, this is one dress that you’ll want wear again and again! The attention to detail and quality of tailoring gives this garment its timeless vintage style and a look that’s stylish, sexy and beyond beautiful.

A definitive dress that’s perfect for any occasion and would be a gorgeous addition to a summer wedding ~ whether you’re the bride, bridesmaid, or just want to look stunning in an exquisite, true vintage creation that’s beautiful and breathtaking! Just add a wide brimmed hat and bright red lipstick...

Measurements: All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat so please double up for all the way around where appropriate. 

All measurements are taken with the garment pulled a bit to flatten ~ and please be aware that there is inevitably a slight discrepancy in the ways different people measure ~ so all measurements are approximate and please give or take about a ¼ inch or so either way.  

Please measure against a similar garment of your own which you know fits you well.

Bust ~ armpit to armpit across front ~ approx: 19 inches (there is some ruching over the bust so please be aware that due to this you will get a bit more room, if needed, to accommodate a larger bust size over and above the measurement provided. However, it will also accommodate smaller bust sizes. Either way, the ruching is incredibly flattering!)

Waist ~ approx: 15 - 15½ inches

Hips ~ free size as skirt is very full and flared ~ however look at the pictures and please ask if you need specific measurements to be sure of fit.

Length ~ taken from shoulder seam where it meets neckline, and down back of garment to hem  ~ approx: 49 inches

Sleeve Length ~ taken from shoulder seam and along TOP of sleeve to cuff: approx: 17 inches. Please note, the sleeves are ¾ length.
