"Emerald & Mint" Vintage 1960's Emerald Green & Mint Silk Halter Neck Dress UK 10 US 6

Made in the most sumptuous shade of mint green silk chiffon, and accented by emerald green embellishments, this original 1960's halter neck dress is a rare piece to behold.

Her wide sequin and bead embellished collar neckline, is set off by gathered mint sill chiffon, that drapes in wonderful pleats down the fitted bodice. The open backline is set off by a central sequin and bead embellished panel, completing the halter neck design. Her cinched in waistline, is embellished with trailing beadwork and sequins, that form pointed downward triangles along the top of the skirt-line, drawing the eye in.
The elegant panelled skirt, is cut of the bias, creating sweeping movement, whilst accenting the natural pleats silk chiffon creates. Lined in silk, and photographed here with a large petticoat ( which is not included in the listing) every detail of this breathtaking piece, showcases the design and tailoring of the 1960's.
