Rendered in the most wonderful combination of cream floral lace and satin, this original 1960's cocktail dress is just the piece for your vintage collection.
The high rounded neckline of the dress is accented by a scalloped and pleated collar, edged with eye-lash details to the lace. The simple shoulder line sets off the full length sleeves, which are edged with scalloped and pleated cuffs, finished with eye-lash details, to match the collar. The elegant bodice, is accented by an internal white bodice beneath the lace, which boasts a straight cut bust-line. The cinched in waistline, is set off by a pale pink satin waist belt, that fastens along the front of the waist with a detail threaded buckle. The black satin skirt radiates in soft pleats from either side of the front of the waistline and along the back, completing the skirt in an A line silhouette.
