1960s Washed Graphic Floral Print Strapless Gown

This is such a pretty dress. I love the floral finish with its soft, washed out graphic print that gives the gown a romantic feel. I completely covers the entire gown for the prettiest effect. The cut of the gown is very flattering and is all bombshell Hollywood starlet goddess. A fitted, strapless bodice follows every curve. It is cut to follow the floral design around the top edge adding to the feminine feel. It cinches in at the waist and then curves over the hips to flare out slightly to the floor. There is a long belt that hooks around the waist and then drapes down quite ling. It is backed in a purple satin for an unexpected pop of color against the graphic black and white palette.  Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a cotton muslin with boning in the bodice. It closes with a side metal and nylon zipper. The belt hooks to close so can be adjusted in needed for the prefect fit. Hand finishes. The fabric has the look and feel of a raw silk but I believe it to be a cotton/synthetic mix.
