1960s Adele Simpson Chic Black Shift Dress

 Chic and simple this fabulous little Adele Simpson dress is that perfect throw on and go piece. Made of a black crepe, it is cut full though the body so is easy to wear. Love the long lean sleeves and pretty satin bows atop each shoulder. You could easily belt this for more shape but I do like it loose and full with the length as it is! Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on. Two fabric covered buttons at the back neck.
