"Pleated Pistachio" Vintage 1960's Halter-Neck Pleated Dress UK 8-10 US 4-6

Made in the most sumptuous shade of light pistachio green, this original 1960's heavy jersey dress, in a pleated and draped Grecian style design, is the perfect statement piece.

The halter neckline fastens along the nape with a jersey string tie, and frames the front of the neckline in a deep V shape. The back-wings of the dress are threaded along each shoulder line on the jersey string halter neck tie, creating gentle pleats along the shoulder line and effortless drape to the winged details along the open back of the dress. The bodice is accented by a fitted and pleated waistband, that sits beneath the V shaped bodice panels, that pleat across the yokes and bust. The wonderful full length skirt-line boasts small gathered pleats beneath the waistband, enabling a wonderful drape to the line of the dress.  The skirt line is line in a layer of jersey.
