Lime Light | Vintage 1950s tailored Lace Wiggle Dress
Better than a wiggle dress from the 50s is a handmade wiggle dress from the 50s. This is from a very sentimental private collection and was made by the owner herself and is too rare to part with. But part, we must. It comes from a private collection, made by the collector's mom. So it is absolutely vintage and has been lovingly kept till now. It truly shows you how small waists were at that time, and how enhanced the bust was! The lace fitted perfectly with the bright lime-green fabric below and the fit is just... we are speechless. It even came with a bra-strap hold at the shoulders, signature of dresses made in that era.
