Name:Lemondrop Lace Dress

Vintage 1950s yellow drop waist cocktail dress. A flirty little number, one we can picture the vivacious Sophia Loren wearing. Pale yellow dress is overlaid with lace. Dress features sweetheart neckline, boned bodice, and low v-neck in back. Dress has accordion pleats and extra tulle for added fullness in the skirt portion. Last photo shoes small tear in chiffon pleat and repair on the pleat where it had a large tear.
