Suzanne Somers, Farrah Fawcett, or Bo Derek would have worn this well!
Fabulously flowy and semi sheer silk-rayon blend fabric from the 1970s offers the perfect cocktail party or semi-formal event dress fabric. To fit with the 1970s look it could be sewn into a Diane Von Furstenburg-like wrap dress or a sheath dress with an underslip in a complimentary color.
COLORS: A true chartreuse (think, inside of a lovely ripe avocado) alternating stripe of a satin finish (think and thin vertical stripes) as well as sheer stripes with no satin finish. Alternating gold threads run parallel to the green strips providing subtle maximalist appeal. Semi-sheer.
FIBER: A silk and poly/rayon blend
Size: 62″ w x almost 2 yards long. IMperfect cutting on the original makes it not fully, evenly 2 full yards.
SHIPPING: Free domestic; calculated international shipping.
SHOP NOTE: I’m all about sustainability. ALL of my packaging (boxes, envelopes, tissue, ribbons, padding) except tape is 100% recycled. I only include invoices by request to avoid more paper and ink use. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
SHOP MISSION: My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst. It is our duty to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still useable in life today.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
