Size 8 Evening Dress - Navy Blue Silk Formal Gown - Picturesque 1960s Sleeveless Summer Dress - Organza Ruffles & Flower Corsage - Bust 35.5

$ 119.99

Exquisitely pretty! This silk evening dress was likely custom made, so picturesque with its ruffled scoop neckline and bell-like skirt. It has a fitted bodice with a slightly raised waist and an original belt with organza flower corsage, beautifully finished with silk organza facings. A lovely find in gorgeous navy fabrics, an unusual color for evening wear.
