Stunning 1950s Blue Green Chiffon Lilli Diamond Illusion Full Skirt Mermaid Dress!

Dress has a V-neck front, lined in light blue taffeta with illusion chiffon, ruched at the top of the shoulders and ending in graceful cap dolman sleeves.
Inverted Princess waist floats out into a very full, aching for a crinoline skirt, over a light blue taffeta under skirt.
Fabric is printed with and all-over black line op art it flowers, or is it waves?
Chiffon itself is delicately striped in variegated shades of blue-green throughout.
Skirt has princess seamed panels gored and pieced with alternating panels of bias cut material. Chiffon has an amazing shimmering quality to it, and the unique color/quality is well captured in the photos.
Dress back closes with an invisible metal zipper.
Tea/waltz length (but check measurement, because this does depend on your height and your footwear!)
Would be a gorgeous special occasion dress; simply elegant!
Beautiful construction with finished seams and facing. Handwritten cloth tag attached, size is unreadable.

Made by Lilli Diamond, USA.
Chiffon and Taffeta

Fabric is in excellent condition, no holes or stains; I am afraid to hand wash. Slight attic odor. No smoke smell or mildew/mould damage. Priced accordingly!
