1970s Adele Simpson Ruffled Dress

The color of this chiffon Adele Simpson is just outstanding! It is that perfect vibrant tangerine that can stop traffic. That color combined with the loose and sexy cut and that addition of ruffles adds up to one amazing dress! Simple tiny straps suspend the dress from the shoulders. It flows down into a column of color into a soft ruffled bottom whose front is shorter then the back. A ruffle of fabric circles the bust, waist and then all the way around that fantastic hemline! The matching shawl has the same edged ruffle treatment. It is a little big on my size 4-6 mannequin but I chose not to pin it as I think it could work loose and draped on a smaller girl as well as one who fit it properly. Really exceptional! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Bust: 17-19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 12-13" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 24" flat across from side seam to side seam, un-stretched
Length: 57" from shoulder to longest point of back hem

Fully lined with a second layer of the same poly chiffon and closes with a side painted metal zipper. The shawl is original to the dress and is also in excellent, appears unworn condition
