1960s Teal Traina Silk Twill Maxi Dress

I adore the way the pattern and color are used to create visual interest and create a sense of height and leanness while the cut is kept simple and sexy. Off the hanger this dress has an almost frumpy feel to it but once n it really has beautiful lines. A wide pointed collar top the button front and full sleeves. The waist nips in with the original belt and then the skirt flows to the floor in a stunning A-line column of fabric. Each sleeve picks up the pattern used to detail the hem. I love the contrast between the tangerine peach and the various shades of lavender and purples. Excellent, seemingly unworn condition!

Shoulders: 15.5"
