Circa 1960s Lilli Diamond Pale Green Silk Grecian-Style Dress
Jump into spring with this gorgeous Lilli Diamond dress! Pale green silk lined with pale yellow gives this dress a multi-hued look. Heavily pleated throughout, the cross-neck bodice is gathered at the waist with elastic, ending in a full skirt below. A matching green sash tie allows you to customize the look for your figure. Never worn - the original cardboard tag is still attached below the Lilli Diamond California label. For those not familiar with Lilli Diamond, she began her career in Los Angeles, CA specializing in prom dresses and evening gowns. She continued to work until the late 70s. Her designs are quite collectible and are well-made. This dress is marked a vintage-size 16, which means it's also a very wearable size. Measurements are approximate: Bust - 37, Waist - 28, Hips - free. Length is 36" from shoulder to hem. This translates to a modern 8-10. Given the free form of this dress, I would bet it would also fit a size 12.
