1970s Pink Lame Silk Adele Simpson

I love this floating confection of a dress made from† the most amazing pinky coral metallic thread shot silk chiffon! Really a stunning fabric that is as light as air and moves perfectly! A nude silk chiffon base has two shade of metallic thread worked into it. The entire bodice is also backed in the same metallic coral and gold as the sash so you get this very subtle shimmer effect through the nude overlay.† The sleeves are left unlined and each buttons at the wrist so you get a soft billow effect. I love the how the back buttons all the way to the waist and that the skirt is a full to the ground maxi. The sash belt is miles long so you can wrap it or allow it to hang to the floor and the shimmer and sparkle perfectly compliments the design in the fabric. It feels slightly more nude in tone and softer then how it has photoed - very romantic! A really gorgeous piece from a great American designer. In excellent condition.
