This dress is stunning. It is a full length dress from her ready to wear line launched in 1970. Mollie hired designer Morty Sussman to do the initial designs and then approved everything he did before it went into production. The dress is made from a lightweight silver lame knit jersey that has a pewter undertone to with the black that is mixed in with the silver. Onto this are thousands of tiny silver sequins that have been sewn into place so the entire dress gleams in the light. These are placed flat on the fabric and cover the entire dress head to toe. The neckline is notched and the sleeves are cut long and straight. The waist gas a looser feel and it comes with a belt accented with a bow that you can use to cinch it in more if you choose to. The skirt falls to the floor under that, softly widening out as it near the hem. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The belt hooks to close and it would be easy to adjust the hooks if needed. Note that in person it is a touch more a true silver feel then the deeper grey it photoed as. The label shot is the closest to the actual color in real life. The fabric has a touch of stretch
