Subtly sexy one-shoulder maxi with empire waist and flowing A-line skirt. Matching shawl, to ward off a chill or provide modesty, has asymmetrical cut, lettice-edge detail, and elongated ties. Botanical fern print in white on the loveliest shade of spring green. Crisp silk blend. Bodice lined in cotton-like blend, skirt lined in silk. Perfect for a bridesmaid. Equally appropriate at a garden party, prom, or any special event. From the 1970s and the Crouch estate.
Photographed (except for the last photo) with a crinoline petticoat, which we found alongside the dress and was certainly worn beneath it. Contact us for a special price if you would like to buy them together.
