FABULOUS and so very Stevie 100% silk chiffon super-floaty, flowing, superb shimmery late 70's-early 80's bohemian dress in a luscious shade of deep ruby red, this beauty is just scrumptious with its exquisite satin striped sheer chiffon sparked with threads of glittering metallic gold, overprinted with little abstract designs in various shade of blue. Be sure to view the video so you can see how gorgeous the fabric is! Icinoo/The Silk Farm dresses were sold in only the top high-end stores back in the day. Such a timeless, beautiful and wearable style, with a flaring full circle skirt cut for maximum draping and floatiness! Fully lined except the sleeves in red silk crepe. The bodice is beautifully made, with a sleeveless silk crepe underbodice overlaid with a slightly blouson top/big fluttery draped long dolman sleeves that are open at the bottom, and end in buttoned cuffs. 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 condition. See all photos for all the views of this beautiful vintage dress. Very Stevie Nicks in style!
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!
Marked a vintage size 10, measurements are as follows:
Bust max: up to about 37", definitely no larger than that. (Though the outer layer is quite a bit looser, this is the measurement of the silk crepe inner bodice layer)
Waist: stretches from 26"-34"
Hip: open, skirt is very full, flowy and dips
Skirt length from waist is approx. 32" at the sides, dips a few inches lower in the middle front and back.
Length is 47-49" from shoulder to hem; this fits and drapes SO beautifully. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and is 36-26-36; it fits the mannequin quite well.
Inner bodice of silk crepe as well as attached silk crepe underskirt.
Condition: Excellent condition and clean, no spots, stains, rips, holes or damages that I can see other than evidence of being worn on the underarm area of the inner crepe slip (NOT on the outer silk chiffon layer) which will probably come out with cleaning. Otherwise the outer chiffon fabric of the dress looks never-worn, is still quite crisp and original looking, has never been washed or cleaned; Labels are intact, designer's "The Silk Farm Designed by Icinoo" label, plus marked a (vintage) size 10. No sash or belt but has side loops for one.
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).
