Vintage 1960s Miss Boutique Tangerine Orange Wool Dress With Beaded Collar
What makes this 1960s A-Line sleeveless wool knit dress so darn striking? Well, you know it just has to be the combination of the brilliant Tangerine Orange wool material and the white glass beads on that sweet roll collar! A clean and stylish look which will be even more stunning with the addition black accessories……black patent leather pumps, hat and gloves!! No, it won’t look like Halloween as you might think at first……it will be STUNNING! Or, if you like, you may want to use white accessories……not bad either way you may choose to go! The Princess Seams on this sleeveless simple A-Line dress give it a very nice shape as well as the darts at the bustline. There are two back darts on each side of the metal zipper closure on the back of the garment. By the way, the zipper closure is hidden or concealed. And on the front of the dress on each side, there are slit pockets sewn into each Princess Seam. Now about that lovely collar…..it’s rolled over and hooks at the back with two hook and eye closures that make it stand up nicely, but of course, the best part about this collar is the wonderful beadwork. A striking pattern is made from small round glass beads mingled with larger faceted plastic orange and clear orange faceted iridescent plastic beads made to resemble crystal. This beadwork was hand done in Hong Kong as the tag indicates and during the 1960s, some very fine beadwork was done in that part of the Orient. There is one more hook and eye closure at the top of the zipper and little snaps on either side of the inner shoulders to keep the dress on a hanger. This dress is completely lined with beautiful orange silk and the quality of the wool knit is exceptional.
Condition: Very Good
This one almost had an “Excellent” rating, but for a small moth bite 5 ½” below the slit pocket on the left side of the dress. Don’t look for it in the photos, because it is so faint, it will not show up! And, there are several loose stitches on the inner silk lining at the base of the zipper. These slight issues will not take away from this iconic 1960s dress.
