1950s inky blue sheath dress. The fabric is a textured crepe; the texture creates alternating stripes of different textures. High, square neck with a tiny keyhole. Short sleeves, princess seaming, and a metal zipper at the center of the back for closure.
This is a great year round piece. It can be worn in the warmer months as is, paired with a great silk scarf and pumps, then layered with a slip, wooly tights, a cardigan, and boots in the fall and winter.
