This American made high end 1960s cocktail dress has a sophisticated monochrome rose print and striped pattern bodice. It has been expertly and lavishly embellished with thousands of black bugle beads in an abstract style. This piece features a scoop neckline which has been cut lower on the reverse to reveal the top of the back. Pretty cap sleeves and a rich black straight-line skirt complete the look. The dress is made from a high-quality silk satin and it is fully lined in acetate with a concealed centre zip fastening and hook and eye at the back. Now unlabelled, this is very premium cocktail wear that would have retailed in a top department store.

The perfect little black dress for any occasion and in beautiful vintage condition with no faults of any note. The silk satin is very fresh looking and free from blemishes. The dress would be a best fit for around a size UK 10, US 6.
