Product Description

Stand out in a crowd in this beautifully constructed dress in a vibrant (bordering on Atomic) shade of green silk, crafted of the finest quality materials and  lined.  Made of a heavy  shantung (raw) silk, the true shade of which is hard to capture  ~ the predominant color  is a shimmering shade of apple green, and the contrasting accents on the defined waist and large bow in back are a lighter shade of the same fabric.  We've provided photos from several different angles so you can assess the color.  Note that it was photographed in intense incandescent light to bring up the shimmer.  If you're wearing it to a daytime lawn/garden party its appearance will be more subtle.

By vintage couture maker Lorrie Deb, a label specializing in quality formal wear based in San Francisco from the late '50's until the '70's.  Lorrie Deb specialized in formal, prom & wedding wear, original designs, and first quality.  (Trivia for vintage fans: Lorrie Deb's principal was the daughter of famed dressmaker Emma Domb, who was instrumental in the Lorrie Deb label's formation, and in fact shared the same offices. If you know vintage dressmakers, you know Emma Domb.)
