1970s Vintage Dress Daring Neckline Slinky Purple Size Medium

Perfect American Hustle wrap style dress with silky purple fabric, plunging neckline, and open skirt. Measurements are in inches: Bust, 34, waist 28 (slightly adjustable with snap closure) Hip 36, Length from center back to hem 48, Sleeve length 21.5. No hem allowance. Very long belt : 73 inches.

Wonderful purple, all polyester fabric. Silky, lightweight, easy machine wash on gentle. This is just a very fun dress.

The dress has two snaps inside the waistline for closure. Love this style. Moving the snaps could pull this dress in for a small or release it slightly for a medium large. It could also be worn completely open and used as a dramatic cover up over a fancy blouse and long pants or tight ankle length skirt.

Deep pleats at each shoulder add drama to the strong shoulder pad silhouette. ( easily removed ) if you don't like the "look". This shoulder pleating allows for draping of the diagonally cut front. Neckline plunges with no closure.

Skirt joins the bodice at the natural waist line. The skirt repeats the deep pleating at the shoulders and flows beautifully. The shaped hemline in front kicks open with every step.

A LONG, self fabric belt holds in fullness. It is wider in back.

Wrist length sleeves taper from generous at the arm hole to fitted at the hems.

Circa 1975. Label: Caron, Chicago

Bust, 34, waist 28 (slightly adjustable with snap closure) Hip 36, Length from center back to hem 48, Sleeve length 21.5. No hem allowance. Very long belt : 73 inches.
