Lower-calf length, formal strapless dress has a fitted dropped waist and boning at the front of the bodice. The beautiful fabric is totally sheer, with bands of blue satin stripes. It's a homemade dress so there is no fabric tag, but likely to be rayon, or possibly nylon. You will need to wear a half slip beneath the skirt as there is no under skirt. The bodice is lined. 1950s.

Good. The original zip was broken and it has been replaced with a modern zip. There's small hole and a tiny spot near the hem, as shown.
