I have seen my share of Miss Elliette dresses in the past, but none quite like this. No, the Miss Elliette I'm more familiar with made 60's and 70's Lawrence Welk-esque gowns with pastel pleated chiffon and velvet bows around the waist and sometimes neck! ewwww. I admit, they are fabulous in there own way but not stunning and spectacular. This was in Miss Elliette's fashion heyday. Made in the 1950's and featuring a "New Look" sillouette with a full felt circle skirt and fitted wool jersey bodice. She is currently available at Xtabay and will not last long...anybody with a 23" waist out there?
