Ethereal and Pretty 1960s SIlk Chiffon Pink Print Dress
This little beauty is so well made I am sure it is a designer piece but somewhere along the way it has lost all its labels. The work on it is wonderful with hand rolled and finished edges and you can tell by the pattern that the design was well thought out. It has a definite Hanae Mori vibe to it and I feel certain that one day I will be emailing the new owner to let them know I have found evidence of its true heritage! Made of floating layers of silk chiffon with a print that starts in a soft pink at the top and deepens to a vivid cherry, then purple and finally a green and block design around the hem. Each sleeve is a single, wide layer of chiffon and set low into the sides of the dress. The outer chiffon bodice floats over an inner more fitted piece. The skirt is a single layer of chiffon but set into the waist in a series of soft gathers so is very full. It sweeps to the floor in a beautiful cascade of silk and color. An attached gathered sash cinches in the waist for added shape and balance. It is so pretty in person. Excellent condition.
The upper portion of the dress has a built in pink crepe inner bodice. The skirt has an inner black silk taffeta skirt under the chiffon layer (the hip measurement given is of the lining - if you needed more room it would be an easy alteration to add or replace the lining to accommodate). It closes with a back hidden set painted metal zipper. All the edges are hand finished.
