1960s Unlabeled Red Silk Chiffon & Sequin Dress w Matching Cape

This is a pretty and romantic dress and cape set that has no label but is well made. I love its matching long caped scarf piece. It just gives that extra little bit of romance and drama to the dress. Both pieces are constructed from a lightweight red silk chiffon that has lots of movement. The bodice of the dress is kept simple and fitted. It is covered with hand placed iridescent sequins that contrast beautifully to the red. Little silk straps curve up and over each shoulder. From the waist, the skirt falls to the floor in a cascade of silk. There are two layers of silk chiffon that float over the inner lining. Each layer is made from yards and yards of fabric so it is very full and has a ton of movement. The hems have all been hand rolled and finished by hand. Over the dress you can add the matching caped scarf piece. This has a built in collar to it that ties to close. You can wear it tied to the front as I have shown it, or at the back, or flip the ends around your neck. It is a really lovely and pretty set and both pieces are very well made. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a red silky rayon. The cape is unlined. The dress closes with a side painted metal zipper and the cape ties to close at the collar. Boning through the bodice. Hand applied sequins and hand finishes at the hem and throughout. Well made. The red is a touch brighter in person and the sequins make more of an impact.
