1960s Coral Mr Blackwell Party Dress

This is a gorgeous, bright and vibrant little dress that can transition from day to night in a snap! Made by Mr Blackwell it is constructed of scarf grade silk that has been screened with a stunning abstract design in pinks and corals. Little bright pops of yellow and purple are worked in and the end result is just gorgeous. It was never worn and still has its original long sash that you can wrap and tie around the waist. The fabric covered buttons down the front are for decorations and I love the pointed little collar. The skirt has a pretty fullness to it and both the lining and the exterior silk are finished at the hem with a strip of horsehair netting. This gives it a touch of structure and allows the hem to have a pretty ruffled feel. So feminine and chic! Excellent, unworn condition

Bust: 18" from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 16" from top of shoulder to waist seam

The dress is fully lined in a pink silky rayon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. The buttons on the front are for decorative purposes only. It has its original tie belt which is in excellent condition.
