Classic cocktail dress of the late 1950s or early 1960s is perfect for the more casual bride of today. Scalloped lace creates a bateau neckline with taffeta lining cut in a sweetheart shape further down the bodice. Princess seams have a creative angled seam running between the two. Flat front skirt is gathered the rest of the way 'round and comes to a point in the back echoing the neckline. Neckline and hem are trimmed in white scalloped lace, an unusual choice for this buttery cream colored lace dress. Embroidered lace is underlined in tulle throughout with a tulle skirt trimmed in a tulle ruffle sandwiched between the lace and taffeta lining of the skirt.

Very Good condition rating a 7 out of 10. The only flaws worth noting are several tears in the tulle lining the sleeves, particularly the right one. Just the tulle not the lace. There is also a small break in the lace on the shoulder near the sleeve seam as seen in the last photo. The embroidered part of the lace has frayed slightly there but the tulle beneath is still in one piece and it's not particularly noticeable. You might even need to use the zoom feature to notice it.
