cocktail party dress in the New Look silhouette, made of stormy blue lace over pale pink lining, with cap sleeves, pink satin bow, and full skirt with built-in crinoline layer. No maker label.Id scrap the big bow and go for a narrow sash/belt.
The black dress with the shawl collar has been done before, but this iteration is stunning. The fabric and the lines just make this dress--you can see the hand of a master at work in this vintage Christian Dior black cocktail dress.
So pretty and simple for evenings. Great idea for a wedding dress on a tight budget. Beautiful white or ivory heavy lace top (Irish lace perhaps) and simple gathered skirt in silk tulle. Add a heavy satin ribbon sash and voila!
