Navy Blue Checked Silk Afternoon Dress

Posted on

With dinner in the oven and the children ready for bed, a 1950s housewife would put on a fetching dress and mix a cocktail in preparation for her husband’s return from work.  This full skirted afternoon dress is made from cool navy blue and white checked silk taffeta, with rose pink accents.  The boat necked bodice is accented with French rococo silk ribbon trim in rose, pale pink, and navy.  The full skirt rustles as only silk taffeta can, given added volume from layers of rose pink tulle.  A rose pink silk belt and pewter buckle draws the eye to the model’s tiny waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, Victoire Roux, FR2 and Nu Face
