This is a vintage I. Magnin & Co. (from what I think) silk chiffon dress. It has a criss cross wrapped bodice that continues to the back, as just the waistband. Full flowing skirt with nice sweep. Gorgeous colors of browns, golds, black and some white. The lining is a rayon material that is a copperish brown. The whole dress is lined. It does kinda have a flower theme; almost looks like mixed water colors, which I have seen other I. Magnin's similiar. I beleive this is from the 50's.

There is no size listed on the garment, only the I. Magnin tag. ( I have pic of tag if you need to see) I can tell you that it is probably a size small to extra small as the waist area is small. The skirt is pleated at the top as well as the top of the dress before the crossover in front. It has hook and eye at the top of zipper and two in the torso area, as well. I do see a small hole in the skirt section, left side in top lining with another little one underneath. When hanging or on, you don't see; I had to put whole dress up to light to find it. See Pic #5. I googled silk repair, and it is possible.


Front underarm to underarm seam: 15 3/4" Flat but does stretch a little
Front waist seam to seam: 12 1/4" right under crossover
Length from top front seam to bottom: 36 1/4"
Back underarm to underarm seam: 16 1/2"
Back waist seam to seam: 12 3/4" (took this measurement right in middle of band)
Back length from top seam to bottom: almost 36 3/4"
Hips: open

It is still a truly beautiful vintage dress..........wonderful colors and a great design. Thanks to my model, Serena, who loves the dress as much as me!! It is being sold as is; still wearable without notice of flaw. Pic #1 BEST shows color.

Shipping will be USPS First Class with insurance included. **It will either be in a small box or poly envelope, to be able to go first class, so it will arrive wrinkled, I'm sure. If you prefer a different method, please advise.
