About

This beautiful custom-made party dress is the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe. With its stunning polka-dot embroidery and flawless styling, this garment has the casual elegance the 1950's were known for. The lightweight silk-organza with satin trimming is effortless to wear. I love the low-cut plunge portrait-collar bodice with little cap-sleeves. The hourglass nipped-waist is both ladylike and sexy, cut to showcase your natural assets! For every woman, polka-dots are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless!
