1980s Green Silk Chiffon Oscar De La Renta Gown

This divine gown from Oscar de la Renta is made of a deep bottle green silk chiffon and has a decidedly Grecian goddess feel to it. The fine, scarf weight silk gown skims over the body and drapes and flows beautifully around the wearer. It is constructed with a draped and gathered front panel that sits atop the bodice just at the edge and the fabric flows out to the floor from there. A second panel is attached so that is drapes dramatically over one shoulder cascading to the floor in an almost train like fashion. It is all cut on the bias so the gown really has the most spectacular movement. I love how it is cut supermodel length and the bias cut allows the silk to just flow and waft around you in the most beautiful way. It is simple and classic but has a high impact feel at the same time. This is the dress for when you want to look and feel a mile tall and supermodel skinny!! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Four full layers of fine, silk chiffon were used in the construction of the gown and it closes with a hidden back set zipper. Has a inner lightly boned silk bodice with a waist stay. Tagged a 6 but please go by actual measurements. 

Note that at least 1-2" could be gained through the waist by removing or expanding the inner waist stay if you needed it. Hand finishes

Inner waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Length: approx 58" from top of shoulder to hem but will rise slightly when on since it is bias cut
