This early 1960s cocktail dress in moss green satin brocade with metallic gold roses will look stunning at your next cocktail party or evening event! The fitted bodice has a wide, scooped neckline, elbow-length sleeves, and an attached band under the bust, trimmed with a sassy bow at the center front. The dress is shaped by darts/seaming from bust to waist, where the darts open up into pleats that add moderate fullness to the skirt. The smooth satin fabric (probably acetate, or a blend of rayon and acetate) is lined with gold acetate taffeta in the upper bodice and green acetate muslin-type fabric from the underbust band to the hem of the skirt. The dress fastens with a nylon zipper in back. In excellent condition, this darling green and gold roses brocade 1960s cocktail dress will fit best for a petite, since the bodice is one inch shorter than typical, from underarm to waist (7”).
