1960s Sleeveless Plunge Neck Iridescent Pink Paillette Tunic Top Mini Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From the Sixties comes this amazing hand-crocheted soft pink tunic that shines and shimmers from a finish of oversized iridescent paillettes. Meticulously looped through the dress’s tiny stitches, the hundreds of disks overlap one another for an allover uniformity and gorgeous tactile texture. Minimal construction details—a plunging neckline, side slits—enhance their luminous beauty. This is a party dress that can be worn alone as a mini or be mixed and matched with other pieces. What’s more? It can also be worn to the back or the front, allowing you to style it differently with every use.

Size estimate: Extra Small to Small

This vintage tunic from the Sixties is in excellent condition. It does not bear a label. It is hand-crocheted from pink yarn, which is likely made from a cotton-rayon blend. Hundreds of iridescent oversized paillettes are affixed through the stiches to the dress. The sleeveless tunic silhouette has a plunging neckline, side slits and no lining. It slips on or off over the head, and can also be worn to the front or back. It has been professionally dry-cleaned and pressed. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
