1960s Red Brocade Unusual Sleeve Dress

This is a great little 1960s light weight brocade dress in a beautiful red and gold combination. The gold is woven through the entire fabric so that you get a glimmer of gold no matter how you view it. Just the pattern pops out more as it is woven more densely and closer tot he surface. The skirt is cut slim and pencil style and the waist nips in. Above that the bodice is fairly loose and draped with the sleeves set and coming from the waist area. The outside edge of each sleeve is left open with a deep slit so your arm peeks through. The neck is left high and scooped to balance this and the back has a keyhole just under the neck to mirror the design detailing in the sleeve. Excellent condition
