1980s Scaasi Emerald Green One Shoulder Chiffon Gown

About

This emerald green silk chiffon gown by Arnold Scaasi 's ready-to-wear line is stunning. The one shoulder cut gives it a Grecian goddess feel and the asymmetrical draping on the opposite side make it a little different form the standard one should dress you would see. I love how all of the curves of the dress work in combination with each other to really create something special and beautiful. The skirt flows to the floor in a beautiful asymmetrical line that is cut so that it sits longer at the back and one side. The other side of the skirt drapes up on a soft angle to allow for a little flash of leg when you walk or move. It also creates a pretty contrast and balance to the bare shoulder. All of the chiffon used on the skirt is bias cut so flows and moves with you. The bodice above the skirt is cut to follow your curves and the hand placed, gathered chiffon is draped down and over to create detail and line. This dress really moves wonderfully when on and is quite beautiful. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a matching green tissue silk that is hand set. Closes with a side hidden set zipper. Lightly boned through the bodice. The skirt has an inner silk layer with two layers of the chiffon over that.
