1960s Velvet & Gold Lame Maxi Dress

I love this hostess dress in all its chocolate brown and metallic thread gold lame glory! Quintessentially sixties this is what you would have seen the well dressed hostess wearing when throwing a smashing cocktail party! The skirt is almost to the floor with a bell shape feel without being quite that extreme. The bodice is more fitted and has a lovely Peter Pan collar and sleeves that zip at each cuff so they sit close to the wrist and allow those little ruffled detail ends really stand out! It ties with a belt that is padded and piped and ends in tassels. It is of course the skirt that is the star on this one - a geometrical pattern is created by squares and diamonds of velvet and gold! It sparkles and gleams in candlelight and is really quite wonderful. Excellent condition.
