1960s Geoffrey Beene Boutique Red Linen Dress

About

The little linen pieces by Geoffrey Beene are some of my favorites by him. He chose the best possible fabrics and that combined with his crisp lines and tailored cuts make for perfect little dresses. This one is amazing and I love the contrast of the red with the white edged buttons. It also features his signature top stitching that he used often during this time period and here he kept the thread red so you have a tone on tone feel. The bodice is sleeveless and has a little scooped neckline. It appears to button down the front with those fabulous buttons but this panel of buttons actually hides a zipper closure. Two more buttons highlight the flap pockets at the waist which are decorative only but add a sweet design touch. The skirt flares out with pleats that give it fullness. It reminds me of a tennis type skirt in its cut and flare. It is fabulous. Excellent condition. The dress is fully lined in a matching red silk. It closes with a front painted metal zipper set under the panel of buttons. The pocket flaps at the waist are decorative only. Bust: to 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 14.5" from top of shoulder to waist Skirt: 20.5" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
