Description

We have a very stlylish retro gold satin brocade designer cocktail dress from the 1960's. Very Audrey Hepburn Holly Golightly!

This is a simple cut sleeveless full length fitted dress with scoop neck and back. The embroidered jacquard design is a detailed cream rose pattern on a gold background with a subtle sheen. The fitted empire bodice has a pleated bust, a matching fabric band that encircles the waistline and an accent bow, with pleated full-length skirt. The dress is fully lined in a complementary light gold fabric- taffeta, we think- with a metal zipper and hook closure at the neckline.

The design label is "Rita Thornton 33 Newbury St Boston", a very famous and fashionable area of Boston shops. The dress is in very good vintage condition with one small tear at the seam of the kick panel in the back- we will let you repair as you wish. It has been dry cleaned but may need an ironing touch up.

The dress size is not marked but it appears to be a small or extra small. The measurements are:

Bust: 32"
Empire Waist: 26"
Hips just below skirt pleats: 38"
Width at hem: 42"
Shoulder to waist length 12"
Across shoulder from sleeve to sleeve: 26"
Skirt Length 44"

What a stunning shimmering 1960's dress for your next formal occasion... or just out for cocktails!
