Posh Girl Vintage

1960s SPECIAL Silk Patchwork Long Designer Dress / Fabric

The silk fabric on this beautiful 1960's vintage long dress is the entire reason I spent a lot of time & money getting this dress in really good condition . I bought an estate from an ex showgirl in Nevada about 10 years ago and this dress was in that estate. This dress is from I. Magnin department store which was a rival of Saks Fifth Avenue back in the 50's and 60's. They carried and made only the best clothing every bit as top of the line as Saks. This dress is no exception. It's made of a soft light green linen liner/ under dress with the most amazing colorful patchwork print silk on top. It has a matching green tie belt and it zips in the back. It had a few flaws and I had them repaired to the best of my ability( see below for details ). I very rarely list any items with this many repairs unless it has a very special quality or it's a famous designer. It's the silk fabric that's the reason it's worth so much of my time. It needs to be conserved and protected. It could also be used to make another outfit or item if one wanted only the fabric. A beautiful classic maxi dress.

Condition Details: No stains. The colors are bright and almost like new. Only slight general wear. There are quite a few repairs. The fabric is so amazing I put a lot of time into making it the best condition possible. I reinforced the silk in some places & some edges had to be sewn with thread reinforcing ( SEE up close PHOTOS ). The constant arm movement &  wear caused the silk to wear through & frey at the underarms but there are NO stains. I thoroughly reattached & reinforced the silk onto the green under dress.
