I laundered this shift, which is out of something stretchy and the v-neck is now a v-waist. Don't panic, beneath, a camisole.
I'm vexed to recall the name of this designer that created a line very much like this frock. I can see her distinctly in my minds eye. Her look was very extreme, with a rigid posture and intense eyes. Someday I'll recall her and post her. Oh, and on the recall part, don't hold your breath.
No shoes are good news.
