1960s Ceil Chapman Green Metallic Silk Brocade Mini Dress

About

When you think of Ceil Chapman pieces you normally think of the fitted dress made famous by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Deborah Kerr and many others. Chapmen designed for these big screen giants and her work centered primarily around evening and cocktail attire. This wonderful little piece is not a typical Ceil but I kind of love it even more as it demonstrates her range. Like the little metallic coat I have on the site (which btw would look fabulous paired with this dress) there was a definitive 60s influence later on in her career and she could design that mod little line with the best of them. The dress is a simple shift A-line with a front zipper that is made of a green and gold metallic silk brocade. The fabric is fabulous with an abstract floral pattern worked through the fabric in shades of golds and green. It has a simple A-line cut through the body paired with ling sleeves and a high collar. Hidden pockets lie along the inset front seams and the zipper front allows you to wear it high or plunged. It is absolutely gorgeous in person - better then the photos portray. Excellent condition with two small notes below Fully lined in a pale green silk. Slips on a zips up the front. Hidden pockets at the front seams. I see one teeny thinning of the fabric on the shoulder that is stable and strong but mentioned for accuracy. There is also a darkening of the fabric near the front bottom hem. I have photoed it. It is very faint and blends into the pattern. Sleeves: 22" Shoulders: 15" Bust: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 15.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 34.5" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Reference Photos: Cherie by Erin Leydon. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
