1960s Rudi Gernreich Geometric Dress
This is such a pretty Gernreich creation. I am always fond of the purple/green color schemes, so this version in plum and deep olive was a love match from first sight. The fabric is 100% wool jersey. The dress is a classic Rudi style, with the slim ballerina bodice and the long, full skirt. The geometric woven jersey starts as tiny rectangles waist to hip, then you find medium size triangles to just below the knee, then huge rectangles to the hem.
