Cocktail dress from Neiman Marcus, and from the closet of an X-Playboy Bunny who never wore it. She purchased it unused Ready to wear with its lovely taffeta fabric in green, red and black plaid. Perfect for that Christmas or New Year's Eve party.
The dress is vintage, but in new like condition. The dress is not pleated but the skirt has overlapping that makes it fuller. In that over lap, which does not show when hung or worn is a tiny hole. Very small. I show it. Looks like a tiny moth hole. With the pleating or overlapping of fabric it hides. The top part could use a belt but I do not have one. I see a place where one could go on the sides. Perhaps a cumber-bun type sash like one would wear on a tuxedo. Lovely to be worn with or without one.
The dress is lower cut in the front and zipper in the back with the feathers going all away around the bodice top. The dress is long. The size is about a Ladies 6-7 US with a 26 inch waist and a bust of 36. The top of the top to the bottom of the skirt is 47 inches. The length of the skirt part of the dress is 40 inches long. I'm 5'6 and it would fall to my ankles. Perfect length. Classy in plaid. Sold by Neimans Marcus and from the 1980s or 90's The Taffeta is super nice. Darling designer dress. Just in time for a good Holiday party!
