1970s Blue and White Painted Silk Chiffon Floral Layered Angel Sleeve Dress

About

Bright colors, and the floral print were staple design elements in poplar 1970s fashion popularized by the rise of countercultural movements notably the hippies. The use of light weight fabrics to form wide silhouettes revived the aesthetic dress attributes from which the 70s hippie style is arguably derivative. This maxi length dress is made of a painted striped silk chiffon that produces a blue-to-white ombré effect that is reminiscent of watercolors softly bleeding together. Additionally, roses of pink, soft green, and red are painted atop in a lighthearted artisanal style. The bodice is fitted at the waist by darts from which a knee length tier drapes creating additional dimension to the dress. Echoing this fluidity, this dress also features elbow length angel sleeves. While the designer of this dress is unknown, the overall style is quite reflective of the work of designers Zandra Rhodes, and Adele Simpson. Size estimate: XS/S Measurements: Bust 32” Shoulders 13.5” Waist 25” Hips 36” Sleeves 17” Bodice length 14” Skirt length 38” Overall length 52”. Made of painted silk chiffon, this airy, and delicate tiered maxi dress brings a jovial 70s vibe to the wearer. The hems of each layer are finished masterfully by hand, and is lined in a light satin. This dress closes at the back with a centre back invisible zip that extends all the way to the jewel neckline. 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.
