About

This is a gorgeous Malcolm Starr with a spectacular print in bright blues and greens on a crisp cotton backdrop. A simple cut, sleeveless bodice has a scooped neck and a V shaped back. The waist nips in and has a spectacular band of clear beads and rhinestone heavily adorning the entire 3.5" banding that circles the waist. The skirt is quite full and the perfect balance tot he fitted top and cinched waist! This cut is very flattering and I love the crispness of the cotton against the pop of the bead work. Excellent condition and a perfect, chic summer dress.

Bust: 17” flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13” flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 14.5" from top of bodice to waist seam

The dress is lined through the bodice in a white silk organza. The skirt is unlined. It closes with a back painted metal zipper.
