1960's Silk Chiffon Halterneck Dress


A wonderful example of early 60’s couture, this halterneck steel blue dress will fit perfectly for a wedding or any party event ! Constructed both in silk and satin silk, this piece features a bustier bodice which is covered with two softly ruched silk chiffon strips. The bustier underdress, with its sweetheart neckline, conceals a large modern internal elasticated belt for extra support to the boned structure. As light as air, a fully gathered chiffon skirt provides a very feminine silhouette. This airy dress fastens with a zip, hooks and eyes at the back. Fits approx. : US 2-4 / FR 36 Measurements (taken flat) : Bust approx. 43.5 cm (17.1 inches) Waist approx. 33 cm (13 inches) Length (lower part of the sweetheart to waist) approx. 19.3 cm (7.6 inches) Length (waist to hem) approx. 60 cm (23.6 inches) This item has been professionally cleaned, pressed & carefully inspected by a couture-trained seamstress before being sold.
