This is an amazing black floor length formal dress from the 1950's. It has a simple and classic silhouette with a fitted top portion and sweetheart neckline. There is boning along the back/side of the top, not at the bust side. The neckline and back has a 3/4 inch series of folded pleats that cover the whole area. There is also a halter style strap added to the bust area so it can be worn around the neck. It would be a great dress for a black tie affair, prom, or formal wedding.
