Lovely 1970's Michaele Vollbracht Pastel Silk Halter Dress With Wrap

About

Michaele Vollbracht's talent as a graphic artist is evident in the abstract floral design of the silk fabric used in this 1970's two piece halter dress with coordinating wrap scarf. The silk fabric is a light lilac purple (though it appears a shade darker in the photographs) with white borders framing pink, green and black flowers. The ensemble tops off with a halter which hooks at the neck with a handkerchief style bib and built-in ties at the waist. The voluminous skirt has a yoke waist with slide hooks and snaps at the side. Both the halter top and skirt are outfitted with shirring to ensure a perfect combination of volume and structure. For fun, top both pieces off with a large 36" x 42" scarf which can be worn as a shoulder or head wrap. Originally retailed at Neiman Marcus...excellent vintage condition with some indications of an alteration made on the yoke waist of the skirt. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS Marked size 6 though I believe the waist of the skirt has been altered to create an extra small size. It is possible that the waist could be professionally altered to create a larger size and I am glad to provide additional photographs of the construction, upon request. The halter top is basically unstructured and would accommodate sizes 2 - 6 by adjusting ties. The following measurements are provided as a guideline. HALTER TOP The top is a 38" x 19" triangular shape with a 30" tie on each side. The following measurements are as shown in the photographs on the mannequin. Bust 36" Waist 26" Hips 32" SKIRT Waist at Top of 3.5" Wide Yoke 22" Drop Waist at Bottom of 3.5" Wide Yoke 29" Full Hips 50" Length From Top of Waist to Hem 38.5" SCARF 36" x 42"
