A bright ballroom beauty! Light up the dance floor with this rather fabulous yellow confection from the early 1970s. Highly embellished at the bodice, neck and cuff decorated with hand sewn bronze seed beads and faux pearls. An inverted V high empire waistline melts into a very swishy shirt: floaty chiffon overlay over acetate. The long sleeves are sheer chiffon, with cuffs that fasten with two press studs. The high neck fastens with two hook & eye closures, and there's a back lapped zip fastening. Marked with Union Label ILGWU.
