"Paisley Sequins" Vintage 1960's Dark Brown Paisley Sequin Dress UK 6 US 2


This eye-catching early 1960's dress, rendered in a sumptuous shade of bitter chocolate brown, and decorated with pink and gold sequins in a bold paisley motif, with illusion tulle panels, is just the piece for that special occasion. 

The high mandarin collar, which is lined in plastic interfacing to enable its structure, sets off the elegant rounded cross over fastenings along the right hand side yoke. The simple shoulder line sets off the short sleeve cut, which draws the eye to the paisley shaped illusion panel, which is framed by a border of sequins along the left hand side yoke. The fitted bodice, sets off the trailing paisley shaped sequin embellishments, which edge the neckline and right hand side of the dress. The cinched in waistline, accents the silhouette of the dress, which boasts high slits along either side of the skirt-panels, completing this dress in an iconic and timeless silhouette. Finished with a tulle illusion paisley panel edged with sequins along the back of the right hand side shoulder line. This dress is fully lined in silk.
