Vintage 1970s Chartreuse Silk Floral Halter Dress with Shawl, Poupee Rouge Small

Absolutely stunning 1970s maxi dress made from a bright, chartreuse green silk with a large hand-drawn looking dark green daisy print. The silk is lightweight with a lovely sheen, and it buttons down past the hips. The hem is sweeping, and there is nice opening down the second half of the skirt for easy breezy movement. The shawl is trimmed in a long contrasting dark green fringe.

LABEL: Poupee Rouge. Toronto Montreal. This label was started by a woman named Susan Kosovic in Toronto in the sixties, and expanded to Montreal as well. Read more about Susie and her label in our blog post HERE.
