$ 139.99

Dainty details for a very feminine style from the 1950s, this ballerina-like cocktail dress has a fitted bodice and full skirt, so pretty in palest blue cotton with windswept embroidered eyelet. The bodice has a trompe l'oeil necklace in hand-beaded faux pearls to the scoop neckline, with princess seams and a nipped waist encircled in a hand-applied midnight blue taffeta cummerbund. The full skirt has seven flared gores with box-pleats in front.
