Vintage 1950’s Japanese Chrysanthemum silk sheath wiggle dress UK 8-10

This vibrant 1950’s silk dress has a red background with large Japanese chrysanthemums in accents of cream, yellow and olive and is a stylish classic of her era.

A perfect piece to add to your vintage collection.

Her modest, sleeveless cut is framed by clever pleats at each shoulder enabling extra fabric for the bodice without the need for darts.

The back has an elegant deep draped cowl, which compliments the look of the dress.

A truly striking dress, wearable for any occasion.
