Midnight-blue silk dress with allover gray paisley print. Long dolman sleeves. Elongated, pointed collar and peplum. Lower-calf length, straight skirt with back slit. Vertical bodice seams front and back for shape. Nylon CC back zip with top covered-button closure.

Experts consulted at the Vintage Fashion Guild were undecided on the age of this dress. To avoid misleading anyone, we will err on the side of more recent and say it is probably from the 1980s (it is certainly no younger). It could, however, be from the 40s or 50s, with a replaced zipper. Regardless of its age, it looks elegant and feels heavenly.

Another gem from local theater Onstage Atlanta.
