This is a wonderful vintage early 70s black dress that is hand crocheted - this must have taken some time to make as it is expertly knit with a tight weave throughout the body of the dress and with a striking open pattern across the top and on the sleeves. The dress has a high neck, full sleeves with three button cuffs and is made in a full length. It is unlined and has been posed without a slip - a slip might be a good idea and you can use whatever colour slip that you feel would work, but most likely you would want a black slip. It has an eight button closure at the upper back - one simply slips this over one’s head. All of the buttons are crocheted.
Label: None - this was hand knit.
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping the style of the garment in mind (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison):
Sleeves: 26” long from the neck
Sleeve inseam: 19”
Bust: 36 around, there is a slight bit of stretch to the knit
Waist: 29” around
Hips: 36 - 38” around
Overall length: 57”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or soiling. This dress looks to have seen very little use and was well cared for over the years.
This is a beautifully made dress - form flattering and striking while still being elegant!
