About 4 – 5 sizes too big for Stella, but it has to be shown on a model because of the swishy skirt and the way it drapes. Lace overlay was very popular in the Kennedy era and much more nicely-done than the cheap versions we’ve seen lately. The fabric is glossy substantial, and there are pearl bead accents sewn all over.
Another great part of the design is the way that the back swoops toward the waist. So, it’s not a drop-your-champagne-glass-when-you-see-it type of frock but it’s a lovely, classicaly-tailored garment that was worth collecting (and a design that is easy to alter!). .
