Another Black Cocktail Dress



While I was collecting massive amounts of inspiration in the L'officiel archives , I fell in love with this design by Jacques Heim, circa 1954. Lace and pleats in the same dress, j'adore!



Of course, I couldn't find prepleated fabric in white or cream, but I had bought some black pleated fabric years ago.





I couldn't tell what the front of the dress looked like so I took the liberty of adding a little bit of the pleated fabric to the neckline.



The hat is from the Gene outfit "Suited to Be a Colonel". I think it goes well with the dress.

I wouldn't know it's lace if you didn't mention it and if I did not see that photo from L'officiel.
