1960s Black and Silver Lurex Knit & Sequin Dress

I absolutely adore this dress and am already jealous of the girl that will be able to wear it. It is so unusual for the time period with its use of a lurex thread knit fabric in this shaped and length. The fabric is amazing - super light weight knit with silver threading worked through the black base to give it a metallic glint from shoulder to hem. The top has a high neck with a wide tie attached at its front. The waist is highlighted with an attached belt and the skirt flares out gently to just past the knee. Each sleeve puffs out above the sequin detailed cuff. Onto the poufed area is a dense floral design made of silver and black sequins. Excellent condition

Fully lined through the body in a silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. A missing sequin here and there on the cuffs but nothing that overly detracts.
