LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a custom made, vintage day or office dress in a wonderful tone of turquoise. This is made from ultra suede. Some may remember the popularity of ultra suede in the late '70's/'80's. It is a luxurious fabric that almost melts in your hand as you stroke its length. Yet, it is also sturdy and thus lends itself best to simple designs that don't rely upon drape for its appeal. This was purchased at an estate sale where it was noted that this dress and others had been custom made. We find no label and no sizing, we were advised the owner wore a size 14 and our measurements bear this out. The design of this dress is simple--it has a boat neck with a top-stitched square yoke. The sleeves are short, raglan style 7" in length from the natural shoulder. These are also top-stitched. The dress then falls from the shoulders with no designated waist. The back is interesting in that 8" from the neckline is where the 16 1/2" zipper begins. So, it is an open placket until one reaches the zipper. The top closes with hook and eye. Another clue to the custom origins of the dress is that the zipper is also top-stitched, but this time in hand stitching. There is a self fabric tie belt that measures 1 3/4 x 65 1/2". Measurements: 42 1/2" bust; 43" waist; 48" hip; 47" shoulder to 2 1/2" hem. WE found no holes, no stain, no odor. Item 12346
