Vintage 1960's designer dress by Alper Schwartz in a light champagne silk shantung.
This Mad Men era or Jackie O style dress is cut with pure simplicity and restrained details.
The bodice front is cut on the bias with low French darts for a seamless front look.
The sleeves are cut in one with the bodice, for a kimono sleeve style that includes underarm gussets.
The skirt has small gathers only in the front. The skirt and bodice back have traditional darts.
There is a slide fit self covered belt.
The metal zipper is down center back

LIning: This is 'flat lined' to the silk shantung in matching nylon lining in the skirt and bodice front.

Label: Alper Schwartz (sewn to back seam allowance near center back hemline)
This was a well known designer during the 1950's and 1960's who presented trunk shows at major department stores along with other well know names at that time. His designs were often worn in fashion shows and this lable was popular with upper class clientele. This dress could have cost over $100 in the early 1960's.

Fabric: pale champagne or buff tan silk shantung

Condition: This is in excellent condition with the following-
Hem: the hem has been shortened (could be dropped to longer length again)
Marks: faint pencil marks are seen on right back shoulder, see photo
These marks are very faint, and seem to blend into the fabric sheen and texture (see unretouched photo shown here).
The listing price reflects these issues.
