Sorry, this item has sold.

A 1950s party dress in light blue floral lace highlighted with pink stitching, over a pink lining, which gives an overall effect of lavender or periwinkle. Attached lavender satin cummerbund at the nipped waist forms a luscious, permanent bow at back. Scoop neckline and armscyes are piped in satin. Between the just-about-a-full-circle skirt and the lining is an integrated crinoline with multiple tiers of netting. Shown with and without an additional crinoline, not included. Closes at back with a metal zipper, top hook&eye, and snaps along the bow. A dreamy confection of a dress from the Sherman collection.

Labels: none - looks to be home or custom sewn

Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton blend lace over nylon netting over acetate, with synthetic blend satin cummerbund, dry-clean

Condition: presents beautifully, with only minor, inconspicuous glitches. a small spot on the right side of the skirt and a smudgy area at the left, both near the hem. the bow and the interior (especially at the underarms), especially at the underarms.
