Shaheen Dress 60s Vintage Blue Chrysanthemum Screen Print M
The screen print work on this shimmering vintage 1960s shift dress from Alfred Shaheen is just gorgeous! The body of the dress is gently shaped with diagonal darting at the bust and a self fabric sash is used to define the waist. The simple styling allows the stunning Shaheen screenprint to take center stage. An over-sized flyout collar adds some drama. The long sleeves are semisheer, ending in solid cuffs.

The light blue fabric has good body with a glistening variegated weave that creates a subtle stripey effect. The Asian inspired screen print is gorgeous, featuring spider chrysanthemums in silver and electric metallic turquoise with periwinkle/lavender foliage. The body of the dress and the cuffs are lined in a powder blue acetate-type fabric.
