1960s Graphic Heinz Riva Linen Shift Dress

This is an extremely well made little graphic shift dress from the sixties that just perfectly sums up that era! Made of a mix of a chocolate brown silk with a silk linen skirt that has bold green and pink blocks. The block pattern is picked up at the neck with a tie in that same fabulous fabric! I love the little details - the single top stitched pocket on the bust and the perfectly finished button holes on each cuff. It is all hand finished and has a good solid very well made feel to it! Really wonderful! Excellent, appears unworn condition

Fully lined in a brown tissue silk and closes with a fine, handset, back painted metal zipper. Each cuff closes with a button and a small hidden snap to keep the cuff set perfectly. The buttonholes on the cuffs are properly finished. The tie is attached at the back of the neck. Hand finished inside
