1970s Unlabeled Green Sequin Dress w Dramatic Feather Trimmed Open Extra Long Sleeve

I love this dress. It's net fabric is completely covered with two sizes of sequins in two finishes with both done in a deep sea green. This makes the entire dress glimmer in the light from every angle. The use of the two sizes of sequins also gives it this incredible sense of texture. It is a really stunning detail that makes the whole dress come to life. The fabric of the dress does have weight to it but it feels balanced and comfortable when on. This makes it easy to wear despite it bold presence. The dress also has a larger cut to it which is nice to find with a vintage piece. The front is squared off around a curved and plunged sweetheart neckline. It is cut to follow your curves and then the waist is seamed to add shape. You could easily add a sash or belt to cinch the waist in even more. The skirt cascades to the floor and gently widens out as it nears the hem. There is some fullness in there and I love how it is set to fall so that you get this sense of soft rounded folds running down the length of the skirt all the way around you. The sleeves are incredible and a statement in their own right. Each is slit just below the shoulder and are open all the way down from there so you see your full arm. It is more accurate to call them a cape sleeve that a true sleeve really. They are made from the same sequin fabric as the body of the dress and then the edges are trimmed in a dyed to match feather edging. It is completely glamorous and dramatic. It is so unusual and very chic once on. This is the type of piece you will only ever find in vintage and I love it. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
