Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A wonderful example of early 60’s couture, this halterneck steel blue dress will fit perfectly for a wedding or any party event ! Constructed both in silk and satin silk, this piece features a bustier bodice which is covered with two softly ruched silk chiffon strips. The bustier underdress, with its sweetheart neckline, conceals a large modern internal elasticated belt for extra support to the boned structure. As light as air, a fully gathered chiffon skirt provides a very feminine silhouette. This airy dress fastens with a zip, hooks and eyes at the back.

Fits approx. : US 2-4 / FR 36

Measurements (taken flat) :
Bust approx. 43.5 cm (17.1 inches)
Waist approx. 33 cm (13 inches)
Length (lower part of the sweetheart to waist) approx. 19.3 cm (7.6 inches)
