Feminine 1960s Sculptural Cream Silk Teal Traina Dress

This is a lovely and classic little dress that is quintessentially female and an absolutely lovely piece. It is constructed from a high quality cream silk that holds the sculptural shape of the dress very well but is not too heavy to wear once on. The top is cut in a simple design with straps that curve up and around each shoulder. The front has a pretty squared off neckline and notched front. I love the little fabric flower that sits at the front at the base of the notch - it is a pretty little detail that softens and adds to the feel of femininity the dress has. The shape though the waist is all created by beautiful and curved seams that run vertically over the dress - this technique uses a lot of fabric and is the kind of detail that you see more often in vintage then in new anymore. The skirt flows over the hips and is cut on an A-line with a beautiful sculptural feeling to it. A really pretty and classic piece. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes with a back metal zipper. There is the teeniest of nips near the hem - easily removed if you wish to shorten an inch but they are almost invisible unless you have it flat and are looking for them. There is no yellowing ot the fabric - if any of the pictures look that way it is the light only. The color in person is a little deeper and more creamier then shown.

Waist: 13.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
