This iconic 1960's lime green raw silk dress and matching over-blouse is the perfect set to add to your statement cocktail wardrobe.
The V shaped neckline of the over blouse is decorated with a large central matching bow, and is framed by a simple shoulder line and a sleeveless cut. The tailored line of the blouse, draws in slightly along the waistline, setting off the three front vents along the hemline. The matching silk under-dress boasts a V shaped neckline and a tailored bodice in a green lightweight rayon. The cinched in waistline, sits perfectly beneath the blouse and sets off the wonderful straight-line cut of the skirt, with a side seam split.
