Ceil Chapman Cocktail Dress | S/M lace detail v neck cap sleeve vintage 1950s womens formal mid century authentic high waist black pencil m


An exquisite mid-century cocktail dress by designer Ceil Chapman. Zipping up the back with a metal zipper, the top of the zipper is met by the v's end between the shoulder blades. The top portion of this dress is made with an intricate lace outer shell. The wide waistline itself is structured with boning sewn into the dress. Falling just below the knees, this dress gives the illusion of an actually really high waisted black pencil skirt.
