Lace Edge Dress
At the Edges.
If you consider that some lace is meant to create a stir and some is meant to make you unforgettable, you’ll begin to understand this dress.
A certain chain of events comes into play when unforgettable is the starting point. A murmur that follows a half second behind you, sure. A stir among the lunch crowd at Barbetta. Later, when you cross the lobby at the St. Regis and disappear into an elevator, it’s a long moment before the room comes to life again.
This should pose a problem only if your field of work is counterintelligence. In which case, you surely have your escape routes.
Lace Edge Dress (No. 5931). There’s a well-mannered negotiation going on here between the stretch-cotton satin fabric and the dyed-to-match lace detailing at the center front placket, sleeve edges, and hemline. The shape of this dress is extraordinarily flattering, with front princess seams, scoop neckline above, and the pencil skirt (with shaping darts) that falls just below the knee. Stretch lining for shaping. Below-knee length. Three-quarter-length sleeves. Center back vent. Imported.
