1960s Rhinestone Detail Teal Traina Dress

This is an amazing dress in a fine silk crepe by Teal Traina. It has that chic and refined look that Traina pieces tend to have with just a hint of sexiness. In this case that is brought into play with that amazing rhinestone detailing across the front and that same detailing is repeated across the back as well. Rhinestones of several sizes are set onto a nude netting and then this is backed by a nude fabric - It gives the illusion of having this dramatic and deeply plunging cut out that is actually completely respectable and covered when you are up close. The rest of the dress is a simple sheath with long, lean sleeves and a cut that just skims over the body and stops just above the knee. Very well constructed as one would expect.

Shoulders: 14.5" across
Sleeves: 23" long
Bust: 19" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 17" from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: 35" from mid-neck at the back to bottom hem

Fully lined in fine cream silk and it closes with a back painted metal zipper and small painted metal zippers at each cuff. Hand finished. Note that there are two pencil head sized faded smudges near the inside seam of the right sleeve. There is also a very very faint area of a yellowed discoloration on the back near the left side seam. These are very faint but the dress is reduced substantially as a result. It presents beautifully and is wearable - these are really issues seen when examined flat and under bright light.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML (6-8)
