The fitted bodice is accented by soft gathered pleats along the centre that gather beneath a velvet band along the centre front of the cinched in waistline. The elegant line of the skirt is accented by the central gathered pleats that radiate front beneath the waist-design detail, completing this piece in an iconic and flattering 1950's silhouette. This dress is lined along the armpits with black rayon.
