With the most iconic black polkadot print set against a witchhaze yellow base, accented by silver claw set rhinestones, is the perfect piece for your everyday wardrobe.
The square shaped neckline is framed by a border of silver claw set rhinestones, that contour the neckline to join the centre front of the dress, running down the length of the dress to the hemline. The elegant shoulder line boasts large internal shoulder pads in matching polkadot fabric, that set off the short length sleeves, edged with rhinestones along the cuff. The fitted bodice is accented by smocking stitches to either side of the front of the cinched in waistline, that create elegant pleats along the base of the bodice and top of the skirt line. The drawn in waistline is accented by a matching fabric belt, which is in turn decorated with claw set silver rhinestones. The elegant drape of the skirt finishes this dress in a true 1940's silhouette.
