1960's Light pink lace dress

Today I'm showing you a light pink lace cocktail dress from the 1960's.  It has a sleeveless underling dress that is attached to the lace and a zipper along the back.  A really interesting design detail is the keyhole back cutout of the lace material.  It comes up from the waist and has a hook and eye closure and small satin tie at the neckline.  A pink satin bow and brooch sits at the waist to give a little pop!  I've never understood why the word brooch is spelled the way it is. To "broach" a subject and to wear a "brooch" are the correct spellings.  Ahh!  The inner spelling bee dork just came out.  Many apologies.  I digress... Check out this dress and others today in the Etsy store!
