1960s Applique & Chiffon Mollie Parnis

Absolutely stunning pale yellow chiffon full length dress by Mollie Parnis, one of my favorite American designers! The dress is slightly paler then how it has photoed - a very soft and romantic shade of whipped lemon. The outermost layer of chiffon has a pale silk layer under it and an additional layer of organza under that - this really gives the fabric depth an texture and a floating romantic feel. The floral applique is heat set directly onto the chiffon - so each floral was individually cut and set into place and fused with the chiffon - you can actually see the edgings of each - amazing! The belt is done in the darker fabric so it picks up the depth of color at the bottom of the skirt. It is a beautiful, dramatic piece and in excellent condition.
