Molly Parnis 70s Vintage Chic Day Dress Mod Office M Saks

Not every fashionista was edgy enough to wear extreme Mod styles - Mollie Parnis designed for First Ladies and other more mature women who wanted a more conservative version of the look! This vintage 1970s Parnis dress features a lean A-line silhouette with princess seaming. The skirt has a deep inset pleat in the front center for extra ease. The deep squared-off U-neckline is perfect for showing off your favorite scarf, as seen in one photo. The dress is fully lined.

Medium weight fabric with the look of hopsacking, but not scratchy - based on fiber burn testing, I think it's probably a rayon/acetate blend. The lining feels a little silky, either rayon or rayon/cotton blend. The color is tobacco brown.
