Truly an original by Carlye from the ‘60s. Made of sheer cotton voile, this solid black cocktail dress sure would stand out on a dance floor with its accordion pleated circle skirt - so full that if you spread it out on the floor, it creates a full circle! The bodice is fitted and sleeveless with very cool squiggly corde appliqué all over the front and back, and a see-through lace panel at right breast. Top has a built-in camisole made of the same sheer black linen as the rest of the dress - and it has its own shoulder straps. Metal zipper up back of skirt and bodice for closure. Dress is in perfect condition except for one snag in the fabric of the bodice (see photos).
