1960s GENE SHELLEY beaded knit dress small medium | new knitwear
We love Gene Shelley dresses! This one is done in a rich olive green wool knit. It will fit a range of size since it is stretchy and we have it modeled on a large dress form (first and fourth picture) as well as an xs dress form (second and third picture, you can see the bodice is a little more blouse-y). Tiny white beads and pearls in a huge flower motif decorate the entire dress. The back is done in a deep v. Back metal zip. Bodice is lined. We replaced the elastic at the waist and added a hook and eye. You can make this tighter if you would like by sewing it together.
