Exquisite Bohemian 100% silk deep wine, teal and dark rose super-floaty, flowing, superb glimmery late 70's-early 80's dress, this beauty is just scrumptious with its exquisite deep colorblock overprint on satin-striped silk chiffon intermingled with metallic golden threads. Icinoo/The Silk Farm dresses were sold in only the top high-end stores back in the day, and famous for their exquisite designs and colors. Such a timeless, beautiful and wearable style, with butterfly sleeves and a full flaring skirt; this does not have a belt or underslip hence the reduced price. You could wear this over slips or camis of various colors, changing the look of the dress itself because of the sheerness of it. It's like a gorgeous butterfly and floats just as lightly.....Silk Farm dresses are highly sought after by vintage clothing collectors because of the high quality of the silk fabric and wonderful flowing designs; this is a prime example and in very good condition! See all photos for all the views of this beautiful vintage dress. Please check all measurements below.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns.
I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.
I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties!
Measurements of this delicious dress are as follows:
Marked a size 10, might be wearable by a 12 too as the proportions are very free. Belt shown is NOT included.
Bust max: open, could be worn by probably up to a 38".
Waist: There is no elastic, and the waist measures 38".
Hip: free, flared bias cut skirt is very full.
Skirt length from waist is approx. 30", keep in mind this may fall shorter on longer depending on the size of one's hips
Length is 45" from shoulder to asymmetrical hem; this drapes SO beautifully on the body, as you can see. Might even look good worn loose with just some leggings and a cami underneath. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6/8 (36-26-36); I think because of the very open/free measurements this would look good on up to about a 12.
Condition: Very good vintage condition, I don't see any flaws, bright and clean, no spots, stains, rips or snags. Label is intact "The Silk Farm Designed by Icinoo" label, plus marked a size 10. No belt and the waist does not have elastic.
