This elegant silhouette is a welcome addition both on and off the dance floor. Suzette is based on a photograph from 1955. The magenta and black, rayon-acetate, brocade fabric is quite heavy which is in keeping with the thick, dense fabrics fashionable at the time. This halter dress is flattering on most body types. The six gore, full circle skirt can be accompanied by crinolines for a more exaggerated silhoutte. You can see that the skirt spins delightfully. The neckline and hem are framed in black velveteen. The bodice is made of four parts and features black, faceted buttons under each breast.
