Silk dress from the early 1960s in an amazing black & white cross hatch print. Faux sarong or wrap style, with a flattering V neck and three-quarter sleeves. A great cocktail dress for the holiday season.

It has a cross over top with a floating sash, which drapes over the faux wrap skirt , as though it were tied like a sarong. The sash needs to be pinned in place, I've used a modern flower pin which I'll include, but you could also use a favourite brooch.

The dress is made of two layers - the outer is a fine pure silk with the amazing print, then it's fully lined in fine silky fabric, probably rayon. No labels, it was probably made by a skilled home sewer. It fastens with a metal zip at the side.
