This cute, vintage 1980’s, bluish purple (we call it blurple at our house) cocktail party dress is such a flirt! It has short, puffy sleeves, a scalloped neckline and fancy silver and pearl buttons up the front.

It is unlined, but the jacquard fabric is a nice heavy weight.

There are some splash marks on the front, but they blend in the pattern nicely.

Maker: Byer Too!
Content: 57% cotton, 43% acetate
Care: Dry clean
Size tag: 9, a modern size 8
