1960s Mignon Densely Embroidered on Brown Silk Chiffon Dress

This is a super little dress from the Mignon label. At first glance it looks like a combination of a print and a silk chiffon but upon closer inspection you see that the floral print is actually embroidery. The embroidery is done in a autumn feeling combination of colors and the patterns covers the dress from just below the shoulders to the hem. I love how the upper shoulders and bodice are left as just the silk chiffon and how this is even carried over onto each sleeve. Each sleeve is cut with a bit of fullness and ends in a little ruffled finish. There is a strip of velvet ribbon circling the wrist just above the ruffle and another velvet ribbon circles the empire cut waist and then ends in a long bow and ties at the front. It is very pretty and feminine. Excellent condition with one small note below to review

The bodice is lined with the same chiffon and the skirt is unlined and closes with a hidden set zipper at the back and a hook and eye at the neck above the slit opening above the zipper. Each sleeve snaps to close.There are two tiny areas of thinning to the chiffon at the back. I have photoed them and you can review in the photo provided after the shot of the label
