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.
