1970s Mollie Parnis Blue & Red Day Dress

This is a darling little Mollie Parnis dress that is a pretty palette of soft reds and blues with subtle pops of yellow worked through the print. The bodice has a simple cut with a high scooped neckline. Each sleeve has slight fullness above the cuffed wrist. The waist is defined by both the print and a band of fabric and then the skirt flares out from there! I love the panels of blue print that go down each side of the skirt - that little touch really is the perfect detail for me! The fabric is a printed scarf weight rayon made to look like a silk. At the time this was cutting edge fabric and quite innovative! Excellent condition

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each sleeve has hidden snaps under the decorative row of buttons on the cuff.
