"Sea Green Chiffon & Lace" Vintage 1960's Ivory Lace & Chiffon Beaded Dress UK 8 US 4


A classic silhouette rendered in an ivory floral lace, which is embellished with iridescent clear sequins along the flower petals, and sea green pearlescent rocaille beads, in looped fringing details along the centres, set off by sea green silk chiffon. This vintage 1960's cocktail dress, is the perfect addition to your collection.  

The rounded neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The fitted bodice is accented by a pleated green silk chiffon sash, which runs along the fitted waistline. The fitted and straight cut of the skirt, completes this dress in a timeless 1960's silhouette. The back of the dress, showcases a wonderful full length sash, in matching silk chiffon, which drapes from above the pleated waist panel, into a full  circle cut. This dress s lined in cream rayon and nylon.

Condition: This dress is in good but not perfect condition. Slight Yellowing to the the lace and lining along the back left hand side shoulder blade. Colour variation and yellowing to the silk chiffon waist panel, along the front right hand side and left hand side and along the back left and right hand side. Colour variation and gentle yellowing to the silk chiffon back sash, this is well concealed within the draped pleats but slightly apparent along the top edges. Light and natural bead and sequin loss is to be expected but is not apparent when the dress is being worn. A few very small scattered age marks to the lining. These minor issues are not overly apparent when the dress is being worn and I still feel the dress is very wearable. Please refer to the photographs as these form part of the product description. This dress has been priced accordingly.
