A perfect dress - June Carter

I love June Carter's dress in this video (filmed in 1968 at the Grand Ole Opry), the scalloped sleeves and hem! The longer sleeves are so perfectly complemented by the longer dress length. We've seen quite a few scalloped hems at Chloe and Christopher Kane, but I'd be happy to see more!
And I'd no idea that I would crave it in white lace!
