Exquisite Bohemian 100% silk vivid orchid pink, orange, black and white satin striped super-floaty, flowing, superb glimmery late 70's-early 80's dress, this beauty is just scrumptious with its exquisite print on satin-striped silk chiffon intermingled with metallic golden threads. This one looks new, never worn! Has the original, coordinating tomato red silk crepe separate slip, which gives it a real glow; you could wear this over slips of various colors, changing the look of the dress itself because of the sheerness of it. 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 softly full skirt. 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 excellent unworn 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:
Dress has no size tag, but the original silk slip is marked a size 10--that is a VINTAGE 10 so please doublecheck measurements!
Bust: 40" but would not recommend this for larger than a 36-37 because it is supposed to be loose and flowy.
Waist: elastic, and the waist measures 40" when fully stretched. Length of skirt from waist to hem 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 hem
The separate slip measures 36" 36" 40" and the bust is snug on my mannequin.
Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6/8 (36-26-36); I think this would look best on up to about an 8, modern sizing.
Condition: Excellent unworn 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, slip is marked a size 10.
Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
