1970s Off Shoulder Silk Print Mollie Parnis Dress

I absolutely love the dramatic color and cut of this piece. The combination of that beautiful red mixed with the floral pattern and soft billowing cut make it quite a stunning piece. I adore the sexy feel of this dress. It is constructed from a beautiful crepe silk chiffon that gives it a very light and airy, goddess feel.  The bodice is stunning - it skims the torso and the entire neckline is finished with an elastic so that you can wear it wide and off the shoulder. The sleeves are left unlined and are full so they billow out with each one caught up at the wrist with a pretty ruffle. The skirt flows from the waist to the floor and the top layer of chiffon floats over the inner layer tissue silk lining - giving it a wonderful light and romantic feel. A tie belt of the same fabric is still with the dress and I have shown it wrapped around the waist. The dress has a fantastic romantic, pretty and light feel, but is still sexy and beautiful. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a fine tissue silk, red lining. It closes with a back painted metal zipper and elastic runs through the neckline.Each cuff closes with a hidden set, fabric covered snap. Has its original matching piped tie belt. hand finished
