This is a fabulous French dress from the 1950s. Unfortunately, the pre-owner removed the label (the marks of the label are still there), so we cannot know who is the manufacturer of this jewel. Considering the print, quality of the cotton, and design, this could perfectly be Sambo Fashions, Horrockses, etc. The zipper is an Éclair zipper, note they were/are used by the top brands such as Dior, LV, Chanel, etc. so this already gives us an indication of her quality. If you are lucky, maybe you'll find a picture of this dress in a 50s catalog and we will be able to know its brand!
So, the pictures already speak for themselves. Exquisite cut with a preciously made halterneck. Stunning figure closing with an Éclair metal zipper on the back and with a ribbon helping to hide the closure. The tag reads size 42 but please refer to the measurements below.
