Joanna Nelson Lace Dress with Taffeta Sash
Brand Joanna Nelson
Here we have another piece directly from the estate of California Designer Joanna Nelson.
This dress presents such a unique juxtaposition: delicate, feminine almost-festival-ready, boho white dress with a pressed and structured taffeta bow in black and white plaid.
Dress has a deep scoop neck, true waist and a fitted bodice. The skirt is full, with plenty of movement. Don't forget the billowing sheer lace sleeves.
A LARGE taffeta plaid bow affixes at the waist and can be worn around to the font or the back.
The dress is lined except for the sleeves with a back nylon coil zipper.
