Deepest teal butterfly brocade cocktail dress, circa 1960s vintage, measures to a modern XS to Small.
Cheongsam feel, wiggle shape, open back.
Sleeveless, this a high boat neckline.
Two straps angle from the back of the top shoulders to the mid center back.
Small Obi- style bow at mid center back, with soft pleating to allow for hip fullness; skirt is slim and straight, with a 3" long left side seam slit.
Interior bodice of pink satin acetate with five points of boning along the sides and back.
Closes with eight hook and eye closures down the left side seam, which is further hidden by the exterior covered zip closure.
Two lines of front darting on each side, from the lower chest to the hips.
Falls to about knee length.
Brocade is stunning! Colors include pale peachy pink, black, shades of pale blue, pale yellow- greens, burgundy, etc.
Fabric is very well placed, allowing butterflies throughout, including centered on the front.
No labels or content, likely made by a highly skilled novice or seamstress, the interior bodice construction is supportive yet allows for comfort.
The satin brocade looks and feels like rayon or a silk/ rayon blend.
In flawless condition- simply stunning!
