Vintage Miss Elliette of California 1960s Beaded Lemon Yellow Chiffon Spring Dress Small Approximately Size 6-8

This vintage Miss Elliette dress is just flat out frothy fun in pastel lemon yellow!     Elliette Ellis loved using chiffon fabrics to express a romantic femininity in her designs.  This lovely beaded 1960's era lemon yellow chiffon dress is like a bright spring sunrise!  Perfect to wear to Easter Sunday events or a summer garden party.  The hemline is handkerchief style with varied lengths perfect for an extra flirty effect.  The dress is in clean, very well maintained pre owned condition with no visible damage or stains.  Amazing for a 50+ year old dress!  The dress is sleeveless and the bodice is hand beaded on both the front and back.  An authentic metal zipper with hook and eye closures dates this dress to the early 1960's along with the lack of serging in the interior construction.  There is no size tag in the dress, but the mannequin used for the photos is a size 6. 

Miss Elliot was a label owned and designed by Elliette Ellis.  After studying at the Traphagen school of fashion and and working for a dress manufacturer, Elliette Ellis started her own line in 1952.  She made mid priced dinner and cocktail dresses that were very feminine in the fifties, sixties, and even in the seventies when fashion had moved in a different direction.  In spite of the mod fashion revolution, the line was very successful.  Miss Elliette's fashion philosophy was "...regardless of what 'those male designers' are doing, most women want to look feminine, particularly in the evening".  Miss Elliette provided her customers with enough yards of floating chiffon, ruffles, and intricate hand beading to satisfy the most sentimentally romantic of tastes.  The miss Elliott labeled lasted into the 1990's.

This vintage dress does not have a size tag, but is estimated to be a modern day size 6 due to the measurements below and also the size of the mannequin that the dress fits.  Please review the measurements below for exact sizing.
