The small shoulder pads along each shoulder seam create the iconic 1940's structure, while setting off the cinched in waistline, drawn in by a matching fabric belt.
Her flowing skirt creates an iconic silhouette, while showcasing the beautiful art deco ripple pattern of the silk in shades of blue and taupe.
