1980s Oscar De La Renta Silk Dress

What a gorgeous little dress! Made of a brilliant yellow silk with a circle and diamond design worked into the fabric that gives interesting texture. The fabric was then screened with little circles of multiple colors - adding a joyful little pop of color from head to toe. The top is cut loose with pretty little sleeves that are puffed and set high. The skirt is fantastic with a huge panel of fabric that swoops along one hip like a forties swing dress. This gives the dress a bit of a sexy edge and lots of great shape! Wonderfully constructed with lots of high end detailing inside. Excellent condition.

Fully lined through the body in a yellow silk chiffon. It closes at the side with hidden zipper at the waist. There are hook & eye along one shoulder and elastic in the cuffs. There is a small dot of a spot on the upper back.
