A vintage prom dress for today’s modern gal

You never know what you might find at an estates sale, auction or even a garage sale.  I found this terrific prom dress that’s decidedly from the 1950’s at an estate sale not to long ago.

This wonderful yellow spaghetti strap tiered dress drew me in with what it was made out of–the stiff netting on the skirt.  That netting was all the rage in the 1950’s, and it was found in many colors from yellow to red to even blue.

What I also love about the dress is the fact that it was handmade by a really good seamstress, it was not store bought.

This really cool one-of-a-kind, eye catching yet attractive formal dress would be perfect to knock any other look way out of the water.  You can find this dress in my Etsy store here.

Where have you run across a dress like this?
