Size 6 Purple Teal Green Cocktail Dress - 60s Couture Quality Design - Exquisite Sheer Silk Chiffon & Metallic Striped Brocade - Bust 34

$ 149.99

This exquisite 1960s silk dress is a very sheer couture quality frock, light as air in bold exotic chiffon. It has a fitted bodice with a point lapel, long sleeves with cocked cuffs & cufflink style buttons. The shirtwaist silhouette has a fitted waist seam and broad knife-pleats, and it's extensively hand-finished. Certainly a high-end piece though no labels remain.
