Vintage 70s Betsey Johnson Alley Cat Floral Velvet Maxi Wrap Dress Gown XS
The waist-cinching wrap style has a fitted bodice with V-neck, daring plunge in back, and gently puffed sleeves with “point” over each wrist (a nod to the Renaissance?), It is fashioned of a sumptuous floral velvet that reveals Johnson’s art school background: White, marigold, crimson, and pink blooms, splashed on a deep forest green ground.
Adding to the visual interest, the neckline, hem, and wrap ties are piped in dusty rose satin, and the ties are backed in a contrast pattern floral cotton.
Labelled “Alley Cat by Betsey Johnson”, the dress is tagged a vintage size 9/10; exact measurements are: Bust 32”, shoulders 14.5”, waist 24”, hips 34”, sleeves 23” (at “point”, length is 25”) and length 49”.
Very good to excellent condition; only issue is that the velvet on the ties has pulled away from the piping in two places (photo #7) and the new owner may wish to restitch it.
