Really gorgeous colors (truest in the close-up photo) in a silky, short-sleeved shift. Bright lime green backs a mod, vaguely psychedelic floral print with latticework design toward the above-knee hem. Colors include bubblegum pink, bright aqua, periwinkle blue, lavender, and creamy yellow. Fabulous tall neck to roll over, under, or wear up high, as you choose. Unlined. Pinked seams and hem tapes. Nylon Fawn zip up the back, with top hook&eye, and four clear, spherical buttons and fabric loops at the neck. Another winner from the estate of Elizabeth W., "Queen of the 60s Shift" (she owned at least 200 of them!).
