The '80s Cocktail Dress by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent
is what you would expect, a dress that your mom could have worn too. But it luckily doesn't have some of those 80s features that shouldn't ever come back, like extra large shoulder pads! This dress has a jacquard croc pattern at the skirt, one inch banding and ruching at the waist, a single button, hidden zipper, and gathered elastic banding at the split back, and short dolman sleeves. It is extra short at 31 inches and is 100% silk.
