Hippie to Disco was a wild ride you can see here in our day and party dresses, suits and tops.

Vintage 1960s Royal Blue Chiffon Party Dress Sz S

A great strong blue on this 1960s rayon chiffon party or cocktail dress. And layering the chiffon over a strong peach lining has given it interesting high and lowlights. The fitted bodice is draped on the bias with a cowl neckline and a V neck at the back. The gathered skirt is full. The stars of the dress are the shirred chiffon shoulder drapes. Wear them hanging free or knotted at the back. We show it both ways. Metal zipper at CB to close.
