Exceptional 1960s Fringe Cream Deerskin Mini Dress

This original 1960s soft deerskin fringe dress (or tunic) will make the most dramatic statement and for the girl this works on you probably just squealed out loud to find one so good. It is entirely hand made with whip-stitched edges. It is constructed from a butter soft ivory buckskin that is very light and malleable and moves well once one. It is cut in a simple over the head sheath style with dramatic fringing that runs entirely down the edges. At the neckline is a bib of fringe work  and the fringes also edge each short sleeve. Interspersed among the fringes are little shells here and there that add a slight sound when you move.  This is a piece that the right girl will absolutely rock and be the center of attention in. Excellent vintage condition.

Unlined and skips over the head. I see a slight tiny area on the front that seems a little lighter but only in certain lights and this may just be a variation of the skins. There are two areas on the back where the skins have natural holes - again this is just a part of the skins and should not be considered a flaw. Minor natural grubbiness but really for a vintage piece so this age it is pristine.
