1960's Fern Violette Tropical Cabana Hostess Dress


Ferm Violette was known for her exclusive high-end resort wear. This is a fantastically exuberant hostess dress for the woman who loves color. Done in light rayon crepe with three tiered bias sleeves trimmed in cheerfully coordinating pom-poms. A quintessential summer look. A wearable size with a front zip, this fits up to a size 8.
