Woah! Give me a second to catch my breath. This piece has me hyperventilating! You don’t often see 1960s pieces with this much style, structure, and essence of the times. The color blocking of cream navy and orange along with the tie neck collar make this such a unique and exceptionally quintessential 1960s piece. Can’t you just see Peggy from Mad Men wearing this dress to the office? On one of her more stylish days of course! The placement of the striping along with the cut make this super figure flattering while the cap sleeves and higher collar retain its office appropriate modesty. There are couple of small damages to the piece the worst of which being a small hole in the upper right shoulder, though the placement of this blemish just happens to be an ideal location for a brooch! There is one other small thinning at one small spot on the right side of the dress. Please see photos for reference. It is made of wool with a crepe silk lining. This is exquisite. Buy it. I would if it fit me! Fits a size: 6-8 (US)
Length (nape to hem): 42.5"
