Wonderful 1960s Mexican Embroidered Maxi Dress

Mexican wedding dresses are works of art in my opinion and this black one is a beauty. Making it even more special  is the extensive, hand done embroidery  that covers its surface. The base fabric has been stitched with a crossed pattern of perfect little pin tuck pleats and they give an extra bit of texture to the dress. Separating each row of the pin tucked cotton are vertical bands of black lace through which you get the faintest glimpse of skin. The front is cut into a high square neckline and I love the wide bell sleeves that end just above each elbow. The entire dress was then covered in hand done, yarn embroidered flowers, that run down the panels of the dress on both the back and the front. Everything about this dress is beautiful. Excellent condition
