1960s Richilene Elaborately Printed Off Shoulder Silk Dress

About

I absolutely love the exotic bohemian feel print and the cut of this dress. The combination of that beautiful printed silk mixed with the soft billowing cut make it quite a stunning piece. The bare shoulders also give the dress a very sexy feel. It is constructed from a beautiful, light weight polished silk that give it just enough structure to hold the shape but allow it to feel almost weightless once on. The bodice is stunning - it skims the torso and the entire neckline is finished with an elastic so that you can wear it wide and off the shoulder. The sleeves are left unlined and are cut full and wide so that they billow out to just past the elbow. The skirt is very long and flows to the floor. Set just under the waist seam is a series of elaborate pleats that gradually open to add volume to the skirt. I love the mix of colors used on the dress. The addition of the green print at the hem is particularly inspired and that is picked up at the tied sash that cinches in the waist. The dress has a fantastic romantic, pretty and light feel, but is still sexy and beautiful. Excellent condition. The bodice and skirt are fully lined in a nude silky rayon and the sleeves are unlined. It closes with a back painted metal zipper and elastic runs through the neckline. Note that the elastic does not have a super amount of stretch, just a slight give. Each cuff has elastic and and the opening is very wide and again it has only a slight give. If you wanted either of these two areas to have greater range in elasticity you could easily change the type of elastic used. Has its original matching sash belt. hand finishes.
