This beautiful vintage late 70s Miss Elliette chiffon cocktail dress is a lovely shade of Emerald Green. The chiffon overskirt has accordion pleats and has a lettuce edge hemline. Lots of motion and swing to this skirt! The long sleeves also have lots of very small accordion pleats. The bodice has a crisscross appearance with a V-neckline trimmed with a soft ruffle that extends diagonally across the bodice and extends slightly off center to the left all the way down the skirt to the bottom hemline. The bodice has diagonal pleats on the chiffon material that covers the front and vertical pleats on the back and there are bust darts on the inner bodice which can’t be seen from the outside. The dress closes at the back with a green nylon zipper that’s nicely hidden by the chiffon material. There’s a metal hook and thread closure at the top of the zipper. The bodice is lined with green synthetic material and there is an underskirt made from the same material that has a silk like quality and is very lightweight. The inner seams in the underskirt are pinked and the seams on all of the chiffon material are serge seam finished. There are moderate shoulder pads in each shoulder. The dress has a long green sheer scarf like sash that when tied around the defined waist of this vintage beauty adds an especially nice touch. This 1970s Miss Elliette cocktail dress is the perfect PARTY dress and will look even more gorgeous with some sparkly clear rhinestone dangle earrings and Silver Pumps!
Condition: Very Good
This dress has nothing to mention in the way of issues except that the sash belt has severeal small pulls in the chiffon material that are not really very noticeable unless you are really looking for them. I think you will be able to see a small silver tone metal safety pin in the area of the V-neckline when viewing the photo of the inside of the dress. The previous owner, for modesty’s sake, used this to keep the bodice secure so it wouldn’t gap open while she was twirling on the dance floor! I have chosen to leave it just as it was found and it certainly can be removed by the new owner with no damage to this gorgeous dress.
