Elegant 1950's black cotton-piqué dress set from the iconic California couturier Juli Lynne Charlot. Juli Lynne Charlot was an actress turned designer. In 1947, she designed a felt circle-skirt which she decorated with appliquéd Christmas trees. The skirt was such a success that she continued to design similar skirts with embroidered and appliquéd motifs. According to many sources, Charlot was the originator of the poodle skirt! This garment is fashioned from a stunning black cotton-pique with sparkling beadwork and appliqued ivory lace. The bodice is an exquisite fully-boned sweetheart strapless with matching cropped bolero jacket. An hourglass nipped-waist met by the full circle-skirt finishes this garment off with a perfect New Look silhouette. Old Hollywood glamour at its finest.
