This twilled silk early 1960s cocktail dress features a marigold green and tan floral print, accented by a chocolate brown organza bow and attached sash at the waist. The sleeveless bodice has a scooped neckline in front and back. The straight skirt has tiny gathers at the waist. It appears that the original hem may have been let down, removed, or for some reason the dress hem was altered in more modern times; it could be taken up again if desired. The dress fastens in back with a plastic zipper. It dress appears never worn and it is in very good condition, with a tiny light mark hidden in the folds of the bow (see close-up photo), which is unlikely to be noticed. This classic vintage cocktail dress from the 1960s has the hourglass fit and quality fabric typical of the dresses from this era.
