This truly mesmerising 1940's dress, in a palette of pink, chartreuse, red & black, depicting a scene of houses & trees embellished with pink and lime green sequins, is the perfect statement piece for your wardrobe.
The sweetheart shaped neckline is framed by wide pleated shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice is set off by a ruched central seam, from which pleats radiate across the bust-line. The cinched in waistline, draws the eye to the elegant drape of the skirt, cut in a full circle, completing this dress in an iconic and timeless 1940's silhouette. The dress is embellished with sequin accents from the shoulder line down to the hips, adding a finishing touch of sparkle. The bodice is lined in organza.
