1970s Bill Blass Brilliant Red Nylon Jersey Wrap Dress
This is one of those dress that you just know that every time you slip it on you will look and feel amazing. It combines Blass's signature simplicity and masterful draping with more then a touch of Studio 54 sexiness thrown in. The dress simply slips on and wraps and you use the black nylon jersey fabric belt to tighten and tie it onto place. That's it and that is all that keeps it on place. This gives it a bit of a scandalous feel when on and that combined with that fabulous red make for one sexy dress. The front plunges as it crosses over itself with you controlling where the placement of the fabric lands by how much you wrap the dress around you before you tie it at the waist. It is made of a liquid feeling nylon jersey so wraps and drapes to follow your every curve. The skirt is long and lean with pockets along each seam at the hip and the top blouses over. The wrapped styling allows the entire front to look like you could step out of the dress at any moment but it is designed to stay in place. It's old Hollywood meets Studio 54 sexiness. Please read the condition note below
Unlined and wraps to close with the original tie belt holding the dress in place. There are some marks that run up one side of the skirt. I have photoed it and the price reflects this. Still wearable and with the color and draping and placement of the marks I doubt anyone will notice. The measurements are taken flat across the back seam to seam but the easy fit and loose cut waist and with all the shape coming solely from tying the fabric belt make it easy to fit a range of sizes. More a true red in person
