Tuesday : Cole Of Columbus

This 1950s, plush, red velvet dress, is brimming with lovely details!

A traditional Sabrina neckline, with form-fitting Princess seaming, is enhanced with velvet covered buttons, flowing down into the Basque waist.

The sleeves are short Puff, with top ruching.

The full skirt falls at standard Ballerina length, bolstered by multiple layers of crinoline.

This dress came from an estate belonging to twin sisters who worked in this dress shop in the 1950s, and who were both bridesmaids in the same Christmas wedding.

One sister wore this red dress, and her sister wore a green dress that is an exact twin to this one, only slightly longer and came with a pair of dyed-to-match satin slippers.

We were lucky enough to save Both dresses to our Collection.
