Beautiful 1950s summer dress in a terrific fit & flare silhouette! It's black corduroy & white pique with a deep V neck to the wrap style bodice, and invert pleats to the full skirt. It has prong-set rhinestones studding the jagged notch lapel, and its original self corduroy belt with buckle front. This dress was deadstock but needed extensive restoration, so it's been washed and soaked (see Condition Detail below).
