This is an elegant cocktail dress from the 50's made from silky twill fabric with a lovely sheen. It has short sleeves and a square neckline. There is a faux button hole feature under the neckline with a big decorative cream button. The waist is seamed and the straight skirt has two sets of double box pleats under the waist line. There is a small slit at the centre back seam at the hem, and the dress fastens with a side metal zip.
