This mid 1960s Lilly Pulitzer dress has a fabulous screen print of lime green lionesses, drinking limeade, perhaps? This is one of my favorite vintage Lilly prints that I have seen—too darn cute! The sleeveless dress has a high, round neckline and a deeply ruffled hem. The self-fabric sash belt cinches the waist, over a fitted waist seam—a rarely seen, more hourglass shape, for a 60s Lilly Pulitzer. (Many 1960s Lillys are shift dresses or more A-line in shape.) The dress fastens in back with a metal zipper and it is lined with lime green, muslin-type poly-cotton fabric. The screen-printed, outer fabric is a crisp, medium-weight blend of cotton and polyester, typical of mid to late 1960s Lillys. This spring or summer/day to cocktail, authentic 1960s vintage dress is a classic, preppy Lilly Pulitzer in excellent to mint condition. It appears unworn: crisp, bright and lovely!
