VINTAGE SERBIN OF FLORIDA BY MURIEL RYAN IRIS SCREEN PRINT DRESS
A vibrant vintage ‘60s dress designed by Muriel Ryan for Serbin of Florida in a fantastic iris print.
I believe this is what is called a screen print as I can feel the heavy ink in the colored portions of the dress. The dress has a light ivory or off white background with brilliant irises and long leaves in purple, hot pink, crimson, deep woodland green and black.
The dress is in a shift style which covers many figure flaws if one should have any. The fabric is a heavier very smooth silky fabric with a nice feel to it. The dress is fully lined and there is a zipper in the back with a hook & thread eye. The “Serbin” name along with a copyright logo is printed on the lower part of the dress underneath a large leaf.
Inside the dress under the manufacturer’s tag is a light cardboard-like tag with the size. They have not made that type of cardboard like tag for decades.
The perfect dress for summer vacations, a cruise or shopping in a fabulous print by Serbin of Florida.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
