1960s Peach Silk Brocade Evening Dress
VV Size Bette
Be still our beating hearts. One of our favourite dresses in our entire collection. The silk brocade bodice is a perfectly flattering shape with a full swooshy silk chiffon skirt. Piped in silk chiffon between the skirt and bodice and forms a centre bow. the buttons to the front are fabric covered and decorative rather than operational. Blue Union label (AFL) made in the USA. Understated classic glamour in unsual colour ways. Team with an aurora boralis necklace (many to be found in our vintage jewellery dept) for some subtle sparkle, and go out and SHINE!
