From the late 1950s or early 1960s, a lovely cocktail, party or wedding dress in allover rose-patterned ivory lace. Sheer sleeves, fitted bodice, nipped waist, and full, shaped skirt. Acetate lined bodice with vertical darts front and back. Satin pipes the waist, trims the notched sleeve edges, and forms a lush bow at the front. Skirt is lined in buckram to hold its shape, and has an attached net crinoline for fullness. White metal NYNCO back zip with top and waist hook&eyes. About as early Mad Men as it gets. High-quality from the late 1950s or early 1960s.
