1960s Lemon Drop Dress

85.00

A flattering, narrow waist and feminine, full length skirt offset by lace sleeves and a darling satin sash make this dress a subtle knockout.

I invite you to scroll down to see images of the 1960s Lemon Drop Dress in greater detail.

Circa: 1960s.

Materials: Taffeta underlay with lace overlay and satin band/bow. All three materials are possibly nylon blends.

Colors: Ecru and lemon yellow.

Closures: Single back zipper with three hook-and-eye closures, one at the back of the neck and two on the band. The sleeves have an elastic band sewn in along the wrist. The four bodice buttons are decorative.

Label: Handmade, no label.

Measurements:

  • Shoulders: 15.5"
  • Bust: 31"
  • Waist: 25"
  • Length: 53"

Condition: Excellent/Near Mint.

Interested in learning about how we rate and measure?

Of Note:

  • This piece is in fantastic shape and I question whether it has ever been worn (if so, not many times I should say!).
  • The rating, then, relates to two very minor spots on the band, one on the back, lower right side and the other on the front, left side of the bow. Both are quite small.
  • Additionally, while it works perfectly well, the zipper must be employed with care, as its no spring chicken.
  • If this applies, note that the sleeves look rad with tattoos underneath them!

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears.

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your item(s).

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.).
