50\'s ? Lilac Dress hello all, i have a beautiful lilac purple cotton dress. i was hoping for some help on the dating and description. seems like 1950's era. seems the bodice is pin-tucked. not sure what the leaf-like treatment would be called-applique ? the fitted waist also has the same treatment. the back of the bodice has a v-shape back with a metal zipper. the skirt is pleated as shown in the photo.
