This incredibly adorable 1960s ILGWU-made mod mini dress was made with a bright and happy lime green crepe fabric and features crystal pleated ruffles and a tie bow at the collar. Shift style silhouette, very short, with long fitted sleeves also featuring the crystal pleating on the cuffs. Nylon back zipper and metal hook loop closure, the bodice is lined with a lightweight cotton polyester blend and the sleeves are unlined. While yes, this dress is beyond cute, it is sadly far from perfect. There are several issues but is still totally wearable for a person less concerned with wearing perfection. Issues are as follows: several small tears within the pleated collar, the seam is inverted above the cuffs exposing the hem (this can be trimmed back to be less obvious) there is some slight fade, most noticeably on the sleeves, the zipper open and closes smoothly, but sits a bit wavy and not flat, the dress' hemline is also a bit "baggy" looking. There are a couple minor marks here and there, no holes or snags. I have cleaned the dress and there are no odors. I hope the photos depict these issues well enough and I hope you can also see that the dress still looks great on! Wear as a costume or to a festival and you won't have to worry as much about keeping your outfit pristine. I know you'll love this unique authentic piece!
