1960s Malcolm Starr Gown and Capelet

Layers of sheer poly pink crepe are used to create this floating, airy little feminine piece by Malcolm Starr. The dress is a super simple full length shift dress made of two layers of crepe topping each other, both over an inner lining of the same color. Pretty little piped straps suspend the sheath dress from the shoulders and it swoops out form the bust and down to the floor in a wide A line shape. The back closes with a zip but the outermost layer has pretty fabric covered buttons that close with little loops so the zipper is covered. Over this simple piece a screened cape-like piece floats it just slips over the head and buttons at the neck. I love the design of sea shells! What a pretty & girlie piece and in excellent condition!
