1970s Adolfo Organza Dot Ruffle Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This is an unusual silk organza chiffon dress by Adolfo in beautiful shades of a soft chocolate with little applied dots of a fine felt. I love the muted color effect of those dots that the layers create by that gathering through the bodice and sleeves. Each sleeve is a single layer of organza and elastic is sued to give a nod to the old mutton sleeve of long past. This effect is carried through with the bodice cut high around the neck. The skirt has three layers - The dotted one you see, a plain organza one under that and an inner silk layer against the skin. An attached tie cinch in the waist as much was you wish and adds a pretty solid pop of color to anchor the whimsical and light feel of the fabric used. It is so pretty and so unusual! I love how all the edges are finished with a ruffle. Excellent condition!

Fully lined in semi sheer organza with an additional layer of silk inside the skirt. The hip measurement is based on this inner layer. It zips to close at the back with a painted metal zipper.
