1960s Baby Doll Back Malcolm Starr Lace Dress

This Malcolm Starr is terrific - its a unusual combination of a diamond patterned net over a net and nude inner dress. It is cut with a sexy and mod baby doll silhouette that is really emphasized at the back of the dress. The front of the dress is cut on an A-line with a simple scooped bodice. The sleeves are full and left unlined so that you can really see that fabulous patterned worked through the net. At the back the dress is all "Alice in Wonderland" with that baby doll feel. It has a low scooped back so you get a bare expanse of skin with a little black satin bow at the base. I love how the back has yards of extra fabric that is all gathered along the lower edge of that scooped back giving it wonderful fullness. This all sits over a nude silk interior that is covered with a black net. Excellent condition

The inner dress is lined with a nude silk with the very upper bodice backed in a nude net. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. The bow snaps into place on the exterior layer. Each sleeve buttons to close.
