Are you surprised? Yes, this dress from 1956 is by Lilli Ann! The company did offer a few dresses in their line, but they were best known, of course, for their fabulous suits. This dress was made from a Lilli Ann exclusive fabric, as all their suits were. Striped fabric was hand blocked with a print inspired by the Siege of Troy. The print is accented with hand-cut Austrian crystal rhinestones. The dress came in black and white or turquoise and white. Sold for $40 in 1956 (about $337 in today's dollar.) Do you love it?
