This early 1960s black lightweight linen sheath dress has a number of attractive features. After doing a burn test on the material I do believe it is linen because of the look of the weave, although it did burn as both both linen and cotton. I had it professionally dry cleaned by a very knowledgeable dry cleaner in my area and they also thought it was a fine weave linen. So, that’s what I’m going with! The dress is sleeveless and has a boat neckline. At the front of the neckline there is a small “V” at the middle and that is held together by appliquéd loops. The back of the dress has a scoop squared off neckline. At the waistline on the back of the dress, there is a faux belt section with two genuine Mother of Pearl round buttons that are not functional. The buttons are solely for decoration. Please note there is no defined waistline and there has never been a belt with this dress so the fit at the front is a little more loose than on the back. At the bottom back hemline there is an inverted kick pleat. There are darts at the bustline on each side of the front of the dress. And, the back of the dress is a little more fitted as it has two seams that run along the sides of the faux belt to hip area. The dress is lined with black acetate material and has a black hidden metal side zipper on the left side of the dress
