Vintage 1950s New Look dress in extremely bright orange Thai style shantung silk. It has a fit and flare shape with a wide cumber-bun style waistband. It is fully lined in matching orange cotton and has a back metal zipper. It has all the natural variations in color and nubbiness that is characteristic of Thai silk. In excellent condition, apart from a few small spots of wear to the silk and a little seam stress under the arm. See last photo. This dress is absolutely adorable!
