SKU: 2020.45 Category: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

A classic black and white A-line party dress straight from the 1960s! The top is made from sheer lace with a grid and daisy pattern that is in high contrast to the simple black skirt and keeps it super modern. Two popular features of dresses from this era are the ¾ length bell sleeves ready for dancing and the soft black bow in a filigree floral brass tone buckle. Unlined, polyester that is sturdy enough to machine wash on a gentle cool cycle and if dried well stays wrinkle free. The closure is a central back zip.

(NB the dress has been clipped to fit our size 6 mannequin)
