1970s Alfred Bosand blue floral silk chiffon dress with capelet
This Alfred Bosand sleeveless spaghetti strap dress has an empire waist and is accented with orange, red, yellow, teal flowers that sit on magical blue background of silk chiffon. There is a depth of color that comes from the silk chiffon’s vertical and horizontal cross-hatching that has the blossoms “pop out” of the vibrant blue as there is a separate blue lining that contrasts the silk chiffon outer layer. A flowing capelet can be worn draping forward over the shoulders, or draped back over the shoulders to flow as you move forward. Capelet neck is very small but does not need to be closed. May be worn with an “open” neck. A nice option to exercise your creativity!
Empire waist 27”
Capelet – neck 12.5”
Condition: Good, some staining in the armpit area, unnoticeable
