This early 80s dress certainly harks back to another era.
A Shift cut, 100% sheer black, silk dress detailed with iridescent sequins in an all over Diamond pattern, accented with pink and white embroidered applique flowers; you can draw a sash, or thin belt along this dress for more definition.
The neckline is Cowl, and the sleeves are a playful, Leg Of Mutton style!
The hem falls to a demure Ballerina length.
Wear this dress with delicate heels, or ankle booties; something shiny in the hair might look nice..
