1960s One Shoulder Coral Chiffon & Rhinestone Dress
Chiffon layers edged in prong set rhinestones give this pretty, pastel coral dress a light as a feather feel. The bodice curves over the bust and the chiffon is set in vertical pleats for detail. The neckline and high waist are banded and detailed with a scattering of [prong set rhinestones. The skirt swoops to the floor from there and there is actually quite a bit of fabric that has been used in its construction but because it is cut on the bias it feels more like a column when the wearer is standing still and only displays its wonderful fullness once you move or twirl. Over the chiffon of the skirt is a angled panel that balance the one shoulder bodice and this panel is also detailed with rhinestones along its edge. The shoulder from which the entire dress suspends is topped by a dramatic bow made of the same fabric and it is placed there and secured by a final double row of rhinestones. So pretty and romantic. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a matching silky rayon. It closes with a painted metal and nylon side zipper. It is unlabeled but did have one - you can see the outline of it where it was cut out unfortunately. In person it is a touch more towards the pastel hue of this coral then how it photoed.
