1960s Unlabeled Multiple Layered Pink & Green Chiffon Swing Maxi Dress

I love this dress so much with its incredible volume and amazing use of fabric and color. It has no label but is well made. The color combination on it is so unusual. These are colors you might not see out together as often but the soft baby pink and that grass green work fantastically together. The dress is actually cut with a fairly simple line. The neckline is cut into a V at both the back and the front. It is suspended from two thin straps that curve over the shoulders and are made of the same satin ribbon fabric that edges the top edge of the neckline. From there the dress cascades to the floor in a loose and voluminous cut that is very easy to wear. It simple flows out in an ever widening silhouette to the ground. There are yards and yard of chiffon that make up the body and lower portion of the dress. The very inner layer is a pink stretch jersey and this is topped by the soft pink chiffon layer. Over this is that green layer and the green layer is cut so that it is split on each side and down the center of the front and back. This lets the pink show from underneath at the slightest movement. The bottom hem of both chiffon layers are finished with a wire that lets the hem curve and twist. This adds extra volume to the layers and creates a fantastically romantic and dramatic effect as the layers float over the inner lining. Amazing. Excellent condition with one small note below

Fully lined in pink stretch jersey and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finishes. The inner layer of jersey has stretch so the dress has some flexibility. There are two area on the green that has light spots. With the amount of fabric in the dress they get lost in the folds when on. See the last two photos after the label shot
