1960s Dotted Geoffrey Beene Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A gorgeous and early Geoffrey Beene dress with an amazing dotted print and cut! The bodice is fitted with long sleeves and a high neckline. The skirt twirls out from the waist and is amazingly full - it reminds me of a skater skirt or a 1950s circle skirt it has so much fabric in it. It is so adorable on and that full skirt combined with the dot pattern is so chic! The waist nips in above that full skirt for a barbie doll silhouette. The fabric is a polished silk I believe - it has enough weight to help hold the shape and structure of the dress but is comfortable to wear. It closes at the front so you could wear the neckline open if you wish! Excellent condition
