1980s Vintage Black Silk Shirt Dress with Geometric Skirt, UK10
A sophisticated, unbranded 1980s vintage shirt dress in black silk, with geometric printed skirt in decorative horizontal stripes of blue, green, yellow and red.
The body of the dress is in black silk fabric, with self covered buttons to the hips. Wide collar, long cuffed sleeves, gently gathered at the yoke with fitted waist. Horizontal bands of delicately embroidered red flowers with tiny green beads forming the petals.
The contrasting skirt is gathered at the hips, falling softly to below knee length. The dress is hand finished, fully lined. At some point shoulder pads have been added but can easily be removed.
It is likely to be a couture piece due to the high quality of fabric and workmanship, but all labels have been removed.
