60s Mod Mini Dress & Vest Set

SKU: 00453-003
Sorry, this item has sold.

Incredibly rich and luminous, highly textured fabrics. Dress with long-sleeve, mock-turtleneck top of cream satin over fully lined, extra-sparkly, gold on cream plisse mini skirt with a very gentle A-line. Thread loops and wide, self-fabric belt. Bust darts, two sets of snaps at each wrist, metal Dara back zip with two hooks&eyes at neck.

Separate, matching short vest of gold on cream plisse beautifully crafted with full lining of cream satin and bust darts, is trimmed around the perimeter with heavy passementerie braid embellished with prong-set aurora borealis rhinestones and faux gold gems. No closure. Can't you picture Megan Draper in this one? From the 1960s and the Jean M. estate. 

Labels: only size and style tags remain

Fiber/Care: unmarked, high-quality synthetic fibers, dry-clean only

Condition: the upper wrist snaps would need to be moved to close on a regular-size person (it's perfectly wearable, however, with only the lower snaps fastened). the cream top has lots of foxing spots, and the neck has minor discoloration at the upper edge. these imperfections are quite subtle in daylight, and would be nearly invisible in party or evening lighting. while we don't normally suggest major renovation of vintage, if this were ours, we would remove the bodice completely to use the skirt and vest as separates, or to pair them with our own top (wouldn't black be dramatic?). 

*This dress and vest set has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.*
