This 1980s designer vintage cocktail dress is pure fun, and is a great one-of-a-kind vintage bridal dress, perfect for a shower, rehearsal dinner, or afterparty. The sculpted lace drop-waist bodice has a corset-effect, thanks to boning on the interior. This dress is exceptionally well made, with a hidden belt on the interior further supporting the boning to hold one in. The 3/4 sleeves are puffed at the shoulder (with a tulle ruffle interior supporting that shape), tapering towards the elbow and flaring out to a flounce at the cuffs. Note the gorgeous scalloped eyelash edges on the lace here.  The lace at the bodice is fully lined in opaque lining, but at the neckline and sleeves, the lace is lined in a sheer tulle, allowing a bit of skin to peek through, in an otherwise-covered, high-neck look. It's complete with a bow details in back. This dress was originally made in the 1980s (sold at Neiman Marcus) and lovingly, painstakingly restored and reworked by myself and my seamstress, so it is 100% one-of-a-kind and you will not find another.

The Vintage 1950s Aurora Borealis Starburst Ear Climber Earrings pictured are also available

Measurements: Keep in mind it has a boned corset interior that is meant to hold you in, and the bodice is meant to be fitted. This will likely best fit a size Small or Medium but please refer to below measurements to be sure. Shown clipped on a size X-Small to simulate proper fit.
Shoulders: 14" between shoulder seams (puffed shoulders extend further)
Chest: 33" with about 1" give
Waist: 27.5" with about 1" give
High Hip: (bottom of bodice) 35" with about 1" give
Sleeves: 20.5" 
Length: just shy of 31" from shoulder to shortest point of front hem; 44" from shoulder to longest point 

Great vintage condition overall, with some minor wear commensurate with age,  including some light shattering to interior lining (not visible when worn) and minor discoloration towards the front hem, which isn't noticeable when worn, and does not detract from the overall beauty of the dress, which presents beautifully. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
