Navy blue party dress to wear with or without its satin spaghetti straps. Features net lace embellished with sequin flowers on the fully boned (front and back), sweetheart bodice. Lots of strategic darts add additional support and shaping. Pleated taffeta hip sash (bow-free for playing grown-up dress-up) accentuates your curves. Straight skirt with scalloped edge has back slit for ease of movement. Beneath the lace is a layer of sheer navy chiffon. The entire dress is then lined in a silky taupe fabric. Nylon Talon back zip with top hook&eye. Reminds us of Princess Diana at her chic and stylish, post-Charles best. Union made in the U.S.A. in the 1980s.
