This truly spectacular 1960's Champagne coloured raw silk dress, with floral lace appliqués, which are in turn accented by pearlescent lurex threads and woven silk embroidery, is the perfect piece for your cocktail wardrobe.
The rounded turned down collar, is framed by a simple shoulder line, which sets off the lace overlays along each yoke and the short capped lace sleeves, which are not lined. The back of the dress boasts a matching lace overlay. The bodice is accented by tailored darts, which draw the eye to the iconic A line silhouette of the dress, which is finished with 2 front pockets along the tailored seams. This dress is lined in cotton.
