mollie parnis

1970s Silk Chiffon Mollie Parnis Dress

A beautiful graphic print silk chiffon dress that has that perfect balance between a bit of glamor and day appropriate wear. I love the contrasting print between the top and skirt and how she used that same black print on to anchor the hem. A small ruffle sits on the neck and each sleeve for a pretty feminine touch. The original tie belt is present and it has been cut extra long so you can wrap it and draw in the waist. Really fabulous day piece! Excellent, appears unworn condition

Fully lined in a black silky rayon except for the sleeves. Closes with a back painted metal zipper. Has its original tie belt. Meant to be worn loose so will work on a smaller frame
