1960s Miss Dior Chic Bright Red Mod Dress

About

I love both the chic little lines of this dress and its amazing color! In person the color is a true bright vivid tomato red and really makes a statement. The choice of fabric adds to the depth of color - its a lightweight wool with a bit of texture through the weave and it really holds that amazing red perfectly. From the Miss Dior line, the dress is constructed to extremely high standards - all hand finished and properly done with every stitch. It is cut on a flared A-line and has a nice sharp, chic feel to the cut while still feeling fresh an modern. It is cut to be more fitted through the shoulders, sleeves and bust and then skims out and over the waist and hips. The fine light wool holds this flared shape beautifully but is not heavy or bulky at all. Love the button detailing that runs up the neck to the high collar. Really a jewel. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a red silk and the interior is hand finished. Closes with a back, hand set painted metal zipper. Note that it is more of a true blue red in person rather then the orange under-toned red it photoed as.
