Vintage 1960s Silver Coated Crochet Knit Dress Size Medium
This is a fabulous crochet knit dress that is finished on the exterior with a silver rubber or vinyl coating. The silver coating is rather unusual but looks great - I’m sure that this was originally an expensive dress, but there are no identifying labels on it. It is made in a sleeveless shift style in a knee length. The crochet features alternating motifs in an open weave, really gorgeous. The interior is plain white cotton crochet and is unlined. There are no closures, so the dress has to slip over the head.
Material: Cotton yarn crochet with rubber based coating
Sizing: No size is indicated, but it should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison), noting that the crochet does have some stretch:
Shoulders: 13” across the straps
Bust: 34” around, unstretched, taken under the arms, stretches easily to 36”
Waist: 29” around, unstretched
Hips: 35”-36” around, unstretched
Overall length: 38", measured flat,
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors. This doesn’t look to have seen much use and was well stored over the years. Although it is very clean and ready for use, my only concern would be cleaning method in the future - I’m not sure how one would clean this type of fabric, so I would consult a professional cleaner before doing anything myself to clean this
This is an unusual dress, but quite fabulous - understated and although vintage, easy to wear today. Sure to make an impression!
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Silver, Size: M
