Dress of turquoise silk georgette over aqua crepe-backed satin. Aqua lace embroidered with gold thread at hem and neckline. Large rhinestone applied bows on left side. Dropped waistline and a slightly uneven hem with longer panels on left side. Machine and hand sewn… . This dress is notable for its gorgeous styling, dramatic color, dipping hemline – which would be quite showy on the dance floor – and fabulous matching shoes with heels studded with brilliants (object number 89.492.560). The American designer, Peggy Hoyt, billed herself as “Dressmaker to the Aristocracy.”
