Cocktail Dress 1960s
Sixties cocktails anyone?
This is a cute 1960s sleeveless cocktail dress in a gorgeous shade. Its scooped neck, piping detail and overlay skirt are so evocative of that sophisticated sixties era.
It is a Frank Usher model made from Dacron which has a slight sheer quality. It can be hand washed and drip dried. The dress is fully lined and has an original long metal back zip.
It is ruched over the bodice with criss cross piping detail which is also around the waist and it carries a little bow at the centre bust. The skirt is in two layers with the overlay meeting and is opening at the front creating a faux split.
