1960s Metallic Silk Brocade Pat Sandler

This is the twin of a dress I have had before and I was so pleased to have it again as it is absolutely beautiful! It is cut to follow and sculpt the bodice with beautiful curved seaming and a high panel around the waist that emphasises both the waist and the bust line. The skirt is quite full and lovely even without a crinoline as shown! The fairly simple cut is completely off-set by the spectacular fabric. It is a rich metallic brocade with a garden of flowers and butterflies flitting across its surface. Each of the flowers has a slight puff appearance and its not until you look underneath that you realize that those blue flowers are each backed with extra fabric so they have a slight "lift" effect from the front. The colors are rich and true and the added outline with gold thread give it a bit of extra pop. Hidden pockets tucked under a soft fold on each side of the skirt are the perfect finish! A stunning piece. Excellent condition!

Bust: 17î flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13î flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 15" from neck to natural waist
Skirt: 25" from natural waist to hem

Unlined but with ribbon finished inside seaming and a silk satin wide panel of fabric set around the inside neck, upper back and arms for comfort. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. I chose not to photo it with a crinoline under but you could add a light crinoline and get a very full round shape. The blue is bluer and the greener a less olive in person then how it photographed! The zipper of course closes completely on the proper size girl
