1980s Geoffrey Beene Green Dot Lining

This is an amazing and wonderful dress! You just know that you will end up dancing by the end of the night in this one! How could you not? If you think it is wonderful in the photos I can guarantee you that it is not even near how great it is in real life. The exterior is a black silk taffeta and then it is fully and properly lined with a crazy brilliant green lining. Which is screened with his signature dot! With every slick and twist of the skirt that lining pops up and makes an impact! The bodice is very sexy with a halter top and straps that scoop down to the low cut back. Darling little bows sit in the small of the back. The skirt is full and has flat pleats worked into it to give it maximum movement. You could add a crinoline if you wanted for even more fullness but I have shown it here as it is without. Excellent, seemingly unworn condition.

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 15" from top of shoulder to waist
Skirt: 21" from waist to hem

Fully lined in a that amazing black dotted green silk taffeta. It closes with a low back hidden metal zipper and the bows snap into place over it. 4.5" panels of black lace finish the inside edge of the skirt on both the black and the green interior. Hand finished.
