FABULOUS 100% silk super-floaty, flowing, superb shimmery 1980's dress with a definite feeling of the 1930's, this beauty is just scrumptious with its exquisite sheer overprint of orchid purple flowers on pale soft blue silk chiffon with a woven design of clipped squares. Icinoo was the designer for the famous Silk Farm, whose dresses were sold in only the top high-end stores such as Neiman Marcus and I. Magnin back in the day. Such a timeless, beautiful and wearable style, with a softly drapey cape-sleeve bodice, a shirred overlay at the hips and a floaty skirt--very vintage 30's! Back zipper; fully lined in palest pearl gray silk crepe. Icinoo/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 great condition.
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!

Bust max: up to about 36-37", no larger than that
Waist max: up to about 28-29" no larger than that

Length is 50" from shoulder to hem; this fits and drapes SO beautifully on the body as you can see. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6/8 (36-26-36); it fits the mannequin perfectly.
