1960s Geoffrey Beene Boutique Navy Jersey Ruffle Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I love the combination of jersey and ruffles on this dress combined with the slinky feel and sexy backless cut. The dress itself is made of a deep navy blue jersey so has a wonderful drape and fall to it once on the body. The halter sweeps up and around the neck, hooking into place. Encircling the neck and running down the line of the scooped front is a double band of a cream silk organza cut and sewn to create a fabulous ruffled effect. The back is left completely bare and the waist is left undefined - the dress simply falls from the neckline into a gradually widening column of fabric. It is quite fabulous and I love the mix of the two fabrics that you don't normally see together. Just more evidence of Beene's genius. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a deep blue silk and closes with a hidden set back nylon & metal zipper.
