From the late 1950’s to the early 1960’s, this find was a Wowee! smile-maker. A silk sheath with lovely tailoring, a full lining and killer fit and in perfect condition. Obviously, someone loved it and, why not?!
It’s by Lilli Diamond of California – a design that Jackie Kennedy and her fashion-maven predecessors would have worn with elegance and sophistication, though it’s almost a wiggle-dress (maybe it is). I love cap sleeves and sheath styles. Can’t wait to try this on Stella – it’s made for her . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
