1960s Unlabelled Floral Chiffon Dress with Cape Overlay


A romantic dress with it's matching cape overlay has no label but is very well made and it was surely a designer piece. With no tag present it is of course being sold as an anonymous piece so it is a tremendous bargain. the chiffon has huge blossoms screened over its surface and these are done in a pretty combination of coral and red. The inner dress is cut very simple with a scooped neckline at both the back and the front. It is suspended from two thin straps made of the same fabric and these curve over each shoulder. From there the dress cascades to the floor in a loose and easy cut that is very easy and forgiving. It simple flows in a widening silhouette to the ground, and there are yards and yard of chiffon that make up the body and lower portion of the dress.This creates a fantastically romantic and floating effect as the silk floats over the inner lining to give the dress the feel of airiness and lightness. Over this sits the matching long cape that is cut to the full length of the dress in the back and to the waist at the front. Amazing. Excellent condition Fully lined in nude stretch jersey. The cape is unlined. The dress closes with a back painted metal zipper and the cape has a button closure at the back of the neck.Hand finishes. Everything under the top seam of the dress is pretty flexible so I have included that seam measurement below as it is the only part of the dress that has no give Dress Top of seam that sits under the arms (no give): 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Actual Bust: 17-19" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: open Hips: open Length: 59" from shoulder strap to hem Cape Length: 59" top to bottom Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Reference Photos: Shown on Cherie This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.
