A gorgeous vintage little black dress with feminine floral lace accents. She’s a classic sleeveless wiggle dress with a figure hugging shape and nipped in waist. A fairly high, square neckline features an inset of floral crochet lace which is also present as a band across the bustline and as a frill below, mirrored just above the hem. A straight chic bow finishes the bodice. There is a classy scooped back and centre back zipper. The dress is made from lightweight woven black rayon and is fully lined in black silky polyester. The hemline has been finished inside with a ribbon. This cocktail dress is likely to be an early 1960s piece continuing on the nipped waist made popular in the 1950s.
