1970s Ruffle Tiered Chiffon Black Dress with Cream Trim
This lovely dress is made from layers of black chiffon set in tiers over each other to create that pretty ruffled effect. This combination of ruffled tiers perfectly offset the black of it to give the dress a wonderful romantic feel. Each layer widens gently out as they near the floor and each panel of fabric is set so that it floats above each other and moves when you move. The bodice is cut with a slight scoop across the front and has two tiny straps that go up and around the shoulders. At the back it dips into a slightly lower scoop. I love that the straps and trim are a cream and each ruffled layer is finished with a cream stitch for the a little detailing. Note that it was a teeny bit small on the mannequin so on a girl that it fits properly it will of course zip all the way up, rather then being open at the very top as the photos show. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a black silky crepe rayon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper.
