1950's Style Tea Dress

The pattern of this dress was drafted from an original 1950's tiny dress, they were so small in those days, you have to breathe right in to try and do the zip up!  This one here is a size 10 and is made from a beautiful crisp cotton in this gorgeous yellow floral.

Bodice has front cross over panels with slight tucking. This is such a comfy dress to wear as the sleeves have underarm gussets which give great arm movement with a slender look, very popular in the 50's. This dress is available , and can be made to order. $180.

Of course no Tea Dress is fully complete without a tulle petticoat!! 

Dress and petticoat , makes the waist look so tiny :)
so you don't have to breathe in :)
