Image Info

A bright, raspberry pink or magenta rayon taffeta dress with ¾ length sleeves and a scooped neckline includes details of box pleats, a large bow at the center back, and two small bows at the waistline.

The interior is lined with cream non-woven, iron on, polyester fabric (pellon). The dress gets its shape from a built-in nylon net crinoline. Dating from the 1955 to 1965 period, the dress may have served as a bridesmaid dress and/ or cocktail attire.
