A lovely example of the art of Shaheen, this pretty dress has a delicate, feminine appeal.
Print of twining vines of flowering morning glories, lush leaves, and orange blossoms.
Sheer light celery green, printed with coordinating greens, pink, and rich red orange.
Body of dress is fully lined. Bracelet length sleeves are sheer, with single-buttoned turnback cuffs.
Shirtwaist style, buttons to mid-hip, with five pearly buttons. Dress has been lengthened at some point; hem is finished neatly, with lace tape. Inner seams are neatly pinked.
Condition is excellent, near mint, with the exception of small (lipstick?) smudge at back of right sleeve at shoulder, minor. Dress has been hand-laundered and gently air-dried.
Do not dry clean.
Content tag is not present; I'm confident it's the famous polyester/nylon blend fabrication, typical of this era Shaheen.
It was a bit tricky to capture the delicate pale green color, due to the transparency and weave of the semi-sheer voile fabric, a light celery green.
