This dress is a fabulous find and the photographs don't do it justice. It is by sought after iconic designer Jean Varon. There are no fabric labels but it has the look and feel of ink blue moss crepe but could also be very fine pure new wool. It has long sleeves with looped buttons to just below elbow length. The wide flat collar forms a V neckline and it is trimmed with loops as are the shoulders and front and back bodice. The dress fastens with looped buttons at the centre front skirt. It has an under bust high waist seam and the skirt is constructed in panels which form a lovely swishy flare. The hem is also trimmed with loops. A really stunning dress.
Vintage items rarely conform to modern day sizings and the UK size we give is only a guide. You are advised to check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit.
Approximately UK size: 12 but please check measurements
1970s / CONDITION: very good - three pin head holes to one sleeve. A couple of very very faint marks at the centre skirt needing close scrutiny when worn.
Please refer to our grading and sizing guides.
