Asian damask silk shift
Firecracker spider chrysanthemums. Heavy, slick, glowing, high-luster silk satin damask made up into a precisely-cut, dart-shaped, shift dress. Edges are piped -- sweetheart neckline -- back metal zipper. Textile, sewing & finishing shows off the best in vintage Asian garment-making. Lined in silk.
size & fit- med/lg
condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted minor issues: several almost-invisible scratches to the silk. One small (skittle-sized) pale stain to the front - not very noticable.
Regarding the pics:
They were taken in bright sunlight and colors are not true. The fabric is a classic bright-red-lipstick red. The floral design is woven in silver and ruby-toned silk threads. The dress is too large for my mannequin and therefore hangs a bit awkwardly.
** Vintage items are precious, pre-owned pieces of history. Many have unique dyes and handcrafted prints, artisan weaves and intricate hand-tailoring -- details no longer available except in modern couture. Please love & respect your vintage.
