"Pistachio Pleats" Vintage Late 1920's Silk Chiffon Dress & Jacket UK 6 US 2


This truly magnificent late 1930's pistachio green silk chiffon dress and matching jacket is a rare piece to behold. 

The rounded draped cowl neckline is framed by a simple shoulder line and short capped sleeves. The fitted bodice, sets off the cinched in waistline, accented by a stitched waist panel finished with a border of faggot stitches. The elegant skirt skims the silhouette and finished in a rounded hemline, accenting the drape of the silk chiffon. The matching longline jacket, boasts a V shape neckline and an edge to edge cut. The elegant inset sleeves are accented by splits along the underside. The caped backline is trimmed with a border of sewn pleats which edge each sleeve and the cape detail, creating a wonderful texture and depth to the silk chiffon. 
This dress is sheer and will need to be worn with a dress slip to conceal ones modesty.
