1960s Tiered & Ruffled Silk Chiffon Coral Maxi Dress

This lovely little dress is made from layers and layers of a beautiful light chiffon with a coral designs washed over its surface. This combination of ruffled tiers and the pretty color give the dress a wonderful romantic feel. Each layer widens gently out as they near the floor and each panel of fabric is set so that it floats above each other and moves when you move. The bodice is cut straight across the front and has two tiny straps that go up and around the shoulders. At the back it dips into a deeper V shaped plunge. Note that it was a teeny bit small on the mannequin so on a girl that it fits properly it has a much softer effect and is not pulled so straight across but rather it has a gentle rounded scoop and sits lower on the bodice. In the photos it is sitting a touch too high since it is tight on my girl. If you are the correct size for this one I think you will be very pleased. It has no label but is made to a degree that I would not be surprised to find it was indeed a designer piece. A wonderful and romantic dress in person. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a pink silky crepe rayon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finishes. Note the color is more of a vivid pink-coral in person.
