This is simply an amazing two piece dress from the 1960’s. The fantastic pattern is a combination of deep orange, light orange and bursts of rich lilac on white. There is a full length silk jersey sheath dress which could be worn on its own if desired but accompanying it is a separate silk chiffon tie on skirt that is made up of two full length panels that meet in the front and the back so that the sides are covered in silk chiffon overlay but the front and back have open slits. The silk jersey dress has a very high mock turtle neck and full length fitted long sleeves. In the back of the dress there are 36 fabric covered buttons that do up with loops. This dress is fabulous.
