1960s Micro Mini Silk Dress & Jacket
his is an amazing little dress with a micro mini length skirt and matching jacket. It is so rare to find these anymore - they where worn to death and this length was crazy popular but for a blip in time only before longer lengths prevailed once again. Because younger girls took to the micro mini craze many of the dresses were also less expensive and made of synthetics. This little beauty is bright silk and printed with a wildly mod print, The dress is sleeveless and just slightly nipped in at the waist and the skirt has a little side pleat detail with a flat bow that sits just atop it. The jacket is kept simple and sweet and is perfectly made and well constructed. It is gorgeous! Excellent condition and an iconic example of the sixties!

The jacket is lined in a matching green silk and dress is lined in a matching silk organza. The jacket closes with fabric covered buttons and the buttonholes are all finished and done with proper dressmaker finishes. The dress closes with a hand set back zipper. All hand finished. Tagged the British Crown Colony and very well made. Note the color is completely even and there is no yellowing near the hem as suggested in the full length photo - that is a trick of the light only!
