Vintage 1960s Pale Pink French Lace Overlay Dress UK Size 10-12
This lovely 1960s Lace Dress in Pale Pink is in beautiful condition, and would lend itself effortlessly to almost any occasion. Thick Alençon lace with an oak leaf design covers a crepe slip, which is silk organza lined and hand finished at the hem. The modest cut of the piece has a classic feel - the sleeveless shift cut has a straight skirt finishing just below the knee, and the overlay on the bodice flares out slightly for a flattering peplum effect. The reverse of the garment fastens with a central zip, the overlay falling open from the point between the shoulder blades to create a pleasant movement in the dress. Carefully concealed popper fastenings are sewn in to the lace on the reverse of the overlay so that the bodice can be worn either open or closed at the back. Would best suit US size 6-8, UK size 10-12.
