New Look-influenced, printed faille dress ---- with a nipped-in dropped-waist & a wide spread of skirt. Ten darts tailor the torso. The drop-waist is scallop-shaped & lined with netting. A faux-button-placket lines up sixteen tiny buttons (dress opens with a side zip). Bracelet-length, cuffed dolman sleeves. Rounded collar is finished with an attached rhinestone brooch and three pink velvet ribbons. The crisp, lustrous, birds-eye faille abstractly depicts florals --- with pink, turquoise-green & off-white, on a navy ground. Beautifully of its time.
