A dramatic cowl neck, an accentuated natural wait, and beautiful gathering at the hips. The rich sapphire blue and the dramatic slit in the front completes the full circle of sex appeal.

Perfect for a cocktail party or a gala after party. Both form fitting and flattering.
Reminds me of an updated version of Sleeping Beauty's dress.

Made by David Howard Karen Okada for Climax
Marked as a 7/8
Made in the USA
87% acetate
13% nylon

Very soft and slinky

Metal zipper in the back

Bust - 16" (doubled 32")
Waist - 12.5" (doubled - 25")
Hips - 19.5" (39")
Length - 42" (from shoulder strap to bottom of hem)
From neckline to top of the slit - 23"
Would best fir an XS - S (in the last photo the dress is rested on the mannequin as it could not zip up on her.)

All measurements are taken flat and then doubled when appropriate. Please let me know if you have any questions about sizing or fit.

In great vintage condition with the exception of two faint spots - they almost look like lipstick marks in the front near the bottom. They are not very noticeable and do not take away from the dress at all.
