Posh Girl Vintage

1960's Iridescent Green Long Car Wash Panel Hostess Dress

This is a rare vintage dress in a large size. Large sized vintage dresses are the hardest of all to find, especially high quality and beautiful ones! This stunning vintage dress from the 1960's is so Valley Of The Dolls! The fabric is gorgeous. The outside is an iridescent peacock green damask taffeta, inside is lined in a solid ivory. It has no tags. It has 6 wide slits all around the skirt, the 2 center ones are the widest...some designers call them car wash skirts because they look like the long panels at a car wash. Dress has a metal zipper in back, and a chic boat neck style collar. It's way too big for our size 3/4 mannequin so we clipped it in to show off the shape.
