Pulp-noir mourning dress
Deceptively-simple black frock in sheerish crepe. Bodice is drape-fitted from the waist -- tiny pin-tucks drape the shoulders -- pucker-draped sleeves. Bias-cut. Nine gores shape the skirt. Deep v-neck. Calf-length. A lovely hang to the fabric. Closes at the side with four bakelite buttons. For a retro-minded femme fatale, add a scarlet patent-leather belt, red heels & some ooh la la.
