Fantastic 60s designer cocktail dress in sky blue silk Chinese brocade by the famed Mollie Parnis and sold originally by Saks Fifth Avenue. Mollie Parnis dressed numerous first ladies, including Mamie Eisenhower, Lady Bird Johnson and Pat Nixon, Betty Ford and Rosalynn Carter. Tis beauty is a wonderful example of the mod style with a box pleat in the front, no sleeves, and a scoop neck with a little V at the very front. The fabric is so soft, the workmanship impeccable and the color amazing. Best part, it's a rare larger size, I've pinned her to my dress form to show the shape. The last photo of the back is unpinned. Metal zipper down the back. Fully lined in a soft sheer white organdy or organza.
Excellent, near mint, vintage condition.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip. Armpit to armpit across bust: 41" Waist: 37" Hips: 41" Shoulder to bottom hem: 39"
