Vintage 1960's Gene Shelly Chartreuse Yellow Sequin Beaded Knit Cocktail Dress



Mid-century Gene Shelly designer garments are in a class of their own. They are always fully-sequined by hand and fit to flatter the figure. This early 1960's treasure has a fantastic abstract-deco design worked in, featuring iridescent-beadwork. The base is an ultra-soft chartreuse yellow wool-knit and the sequin work is done in the same hue. Just look at the detail pictures! Though the hourglass fit is rather seductive, the 3/4-length sleeves give it a balanced elegance that Gene Shelly is known for. I love the nipped-waist belted hourglass wiggle skirt! This is the type of garment celebrity vixens, like Marilyn Monroe, made infamous. Extraordinary and a rare find to be in such pristine condition. Measurements (The knit will allow stretch so you can safely add two inches to the below measurements) Bust: 34 inches Waist: 28 inches Hips: 36 inches Sleeve Length: 19 inches Total Length: 42 inches This vintage Gene Shelly designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
