Metallic Gold Thread Print Mod Shift Dress, 1960s


This is a gorgeous little metallic dress with a pretty print that combines a deep charcoal, gold and white. It has lost its label along the way but is a well made piece and I am guessing it had one at some point. The cut is simple and sweet with a sleeveless, A-line shift shape to it. The bodice has seams that curve around the bust and the neckline is cut in curving, wide set V. The high waist is accented with a matching fabric, attached belt. I love the big round, stone encrusted buckle at the front. The skirt skims over the hip and flares out as it reached the hem. The fabric is the real star of the show on this one and I love the fabulous print that covers the surface of the dress. Excellent condition Fully lined in ivory silk and closes with a back, hidden set zipper. The attached belt at the waist snaps to close at the back. I see a couple of the black stones missing from the belt buckle but its not noticeable at all unless you specifically look at it closely. In person the gold feels more prominent that how it photoed. Really super in person Bust: 17.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 11" from top of shoulder to the top seam of the band at the waist Skirt: 23.5" from the top seam of the band at the waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
