1970s Brilliant Green w Bright Pink Accents Printed Ribbon Silk Chiffon Full Length Maxi Dress

This dress is made out of a fine Indian printed silk. The fabric choice combined with that vivid colour combination of a  bright pink and green is fantastic. That gorgeous print runs over every inch of the dress and the silk has a ribbon effect woven through it. I love the lightness and airiness of the dress that is created by the many yards of silk chiffon. Working in this type of fabric is already difficult and this would have taken many hours of work to complete this dress. The silk is cut on the bias through the skirt giving it a lovely movement when you move. It  will just float and move around you at the slightest movement. The neckline is squared off and cut low. The bodice skim over you and its cut to follow your curves with a nipped in waist. The sleeves are cut wide and full so that they end in a wide flare at the wrist. At the back the dress scoops low leaving the upper back bare. It comes with a long matching sash that you can use at the waist, neck, or as a head scarf. It will also ship with an additional skinny belt covered in the same fabric (not pictured). Excellent condition with a minor note below

Fully lined in bright green silk with the sleeves lined in silk chiffon. It closes with a hand set, painted metal & nylon zipper. Hand finishes. The sash has hand rolled edges. The inner lining to the skirt has small nicks and thinning to it throughout. It seems stable and is completely wearable as is. No similar issues to the outer layer at all. Some grubbiness to the hem that gets lost in the print. I see one mark on the skirt that gets lost in the print.
