The boned bodice is in iridescent purple with an overlayer of navy net dotted with gold. It has purple shoulder straps and pleated front detail with six metallic décor buttons. It is fitted to the waist with a full skirt of navy and gold dotted net over purple, interlayered with tulle. It fastens at the back with a metal zip.

It is a tiny size, which doesn't zip up on our mannequin, and we have estimated it as a contemporary UK6 with a 32" bust and (up to) 26" waist.

There are a couple of tiny tears to the net which are only noticeable on close inspection and do not detract from the wearability of this darling dress which is well over 50 years old and ready for the prom!
