Striped Balloon Sleeve Dress
Sweet nautical striped dress by Geoffrey Beene. Sheer striped organdy dress is a flattering, ladylike piece with dramatic balloon sleeves, a high waist, and full skirt. Sheer dolman-style sleeves with wide cuffs form the high waisted double-layered bodice with a deep v-neckline adorned with a fabric blossom and bow full of sweet sailor inspiration. Lined skirt is breezy and light, perfect for a scorching day out on the sea. Covered button cuffs and waistband with a back zipper. We would wear with platform espadrilles and a basket bag, ready for our next day out on the water. Ivory, marine blue.
-Condition: Good Used Condition
*Spots throughout, especially concentrated on front of skirt, and fabric at hem and lining is very discolored (pictured); we think this makes a great inspiration piece. Missing button on left sleeve cuff (pictured); easily repariable.
