Mask-a-rave | Vintage 1950s 1960s Court neckline White Black striped dress
All lined up but not as straight-forward as you think ;) In this way, the lines on this pretty black/white monochrome 1950s/60s dress certainly reflects life, doesn't it?
The lines up top follows the curve of the wearer, and then they flow down out out in arial-lines from the waist. And the full circle skirt gives it such an elegant sashay, especially with you walk ;)
This has an elegant court neckline, with slight dip in the middle that shows off the collar-bones nicely. It is rather quite feminine, but the color palette keeps it quite in the middle too.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
