SOLD // 50s / 60s Saks Fifth Avenue Silk and Lame Sheath Dress
Vintage Sheath Dress From The Late 50s, Early 60s
This beautiful vintage party dress was made for Saks Fifth Avenue and is a superbly constructed high end dress in the most amazing printed silk. This special occasion dress has a boat neckline, bust darts, and is sleeveless. The front of the dress is one panel and has four vertical tucks for shape. The back of the dress is two panels (bodice and skirt) and has four vertical tucks and a full metal zipper. The dress is made out of a wonderful teal silk with gold lame accents throughout. The lame gives this dress a subtle shimmer of gold when hit by light. The dress is fully lined. The bodice lining is heavier than the skirt lining, and has armpit protectors which can be removed. An absolutely stunning dress, Asian inspired but made in USA. Please note, the hem on this dress has been taken down and the original hemline is visible. I have opted to leave the hem as-is.
