1960s Metallic & Velvet Malcolm Starr Maxi Dress

This Malcolm Starr is terrific - it is a unusual combination of a deep burgundy print gold metallic brocade mixed with a deep plush burgundy velvet. Cut with a nod to a baby doll silhouette the skirt is fairly full as it falls to the floor and the bodice scooped. The waist line is high and the sash cut on a curve, emphasizing that Alice in Wonderland, baby doll feel even more. The sleeves are long and slightly full and each cuffs to the wrist. The skirt is really incredible with a checked patchwork of metallic and velvet squares. The detail I love the most is that the metallic brocade fabric has a subtle square stitch that runs through every inch of that fabric so you get a subtle second reference to that check pattern! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a deep red silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each sleeve closes with hidden, fabric covered snaps. hand finishes.
