The first thing I noticed about this dress was the style, and the long metal zipper on the left side. When I looked more carefully, the unusual fabric and careful construction wowed me! With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, need I say more?
The lining, which can be seen at the neckline, is a pale yellow. The patterned material is light green, yellow and blue . Over that is a sheer layer of light olive, which is hardly noticeable at first but really intensifies the color of the underlying pattern!
This is a mid-century, maybe custom-made dress of exceptional handmade quality and with beautiful design and fabric. I LOVE finding things that are different from what I’ve seen before and being surprised!!! That’s the best fun of sleuthing for true vintage fashion . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
