1960s Adele Simpson Silk LDB w/Bows

 

 

 

 

From the wardrobe of a former aide to JFKduring his Administration, and judging from this dress, we'd say that even the White House staff was influenced by the style of the First Lady.  An elegant LDB in a silk satin, the lines are very straight and simple.  The bodice has a simple jewel neckline with a slender dolman sleeve.  The waist is cut higher in the front, not quite empire, then slopes to the small of the back and is gently eased by gathering along the waist seam, with a small, chic little bow above a pleat at either side of the front waist.   Full length zipper closure in back and a 5" walking slit at the bottom rear., it is fully lined in silk crepe de chine, and is in excellent condition. Also has two tiny Julius Garfinkle & Co. labels as strapkeepers at each shoulder. Sized for a modern 4 to very slender 6, the bust measures 34"; waist 28"; hip 37"; shoulder 14.5", sleeve 20", length 40". $175
