1960s Mollie Parnis Yellow & Black Halterneck Ruffle Dress


Stylish late 1960s/1970s mid-weight linen blend halter neck dress by celebrated American designer Mollie Parnis. The dress has a wrap-over bodice and a deep ruffle collar which flows around to the back with black trimming. Centre back zip, side pockets, labelled and fully lined a matching yellow silk lining, the dress is in excellent condition with no noticeable flaws. There are wide belt loops on the side seams but no belt remains. These would be very easy to remove if desired. Mollie Parnis designs have been worn by no fewer than 5 First Ladies including Mamie Eisenhower, Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Betty Ford and Rosalynn Carter.
