1970's Mollie Parnis Evening Dress. This dress is made of a luxurious silk jersey with lycra. It has a silk lining and it is meant to fit snuggly on the body. The empire waist is not straight across but slightly curved. It closes with a 13.50" zipper on the left side of the dress. There is no size indicated but I would say that it is a size 4-6. The flat measurements are as follows: Armpit to armpit 32", Empire Waist 29", Hips 36" and Length from top of shoulder 50". There are a few issues. The lining is about 2" longer than the dress is some places. This fabric is quite prone to snags and pulls. There are a few on the front as well as the back but they really aren't too noticeable.
