Spring 1975 Petal Hem Oscar De La Renta Dress

Perfect for the upcoming season, this amazing De la Renta silk chiffon dress is just wonderful. Made of almost weightless silk chiffon with pretty soft pinks and corals set on a hand screened design to suggest feathers. It is suspended from the shoulders by two tiny silk straps and then flows loosely to the hem in a bias cut cascade of silk. The hem dips longer at the front center and back and is finished with pretty pointed edging. Each side dips into a low V to mimic this detailing at the hem. Easy to wear and very beautiful. Excellent condition.

Fully lined with an inner layer of off white silk that is also cut on the bias and has the same hem detailing. Slips on the wear. Hand finished.

Bust: bias cut so 14-20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: open
Hips: open
Length: 53" from top of shoulder to longest point on the hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED

Item# DD1726
