Vintage Fleur de Lys Ballerina Dress


A darling little number, fitted to the waist, bracelet length sleeves, scoop neck, drop shoulder, low back with buttons and bow accent, and gathered skirt. There's a self belt (not shot on the figure) and an all over print of black fleur de lys motifs with tiny stars.  It's of course a riff on the dirndl, but it doesn't read that way.

Measurements: Bust 32", waist 26", length 38" 

STORY: From the long defunct Salowitz Bros Young Houstonian Shop and made by Lanz of Austria, which is still going strong.
