This slim cut classic sheath dress by Bobbie Brooks is made of a beautiful medium weight wool knit with simple, elegant lines.
The dress features a jewel neckline, and long slender sleeves. The only design lines are the bust darts which gently curve from the side seams at the hips to the bust point, and the side seams have a very slight flare to the hem.

These sleek modern dresses came into vogue in the 60s and continued into the 70s with their popularity.
This is freshly cleaned, and in excellent condition; it appears to have been worn very gently, if at all.
We have lightened a few of the images to show detail better; the color is a very deep, dark, rich black. It is, truly, a little black dress.
