1960s Little Black Shift Dress with Curved Seams

This is a great little black dress that is both sleek and simple black shift dress made of a wool crepe. The exterior is a simple cut that has an almost Cardin or Courreges feel to the seam work and design. An obvious homage to those designers and the feel of the era. The front skims the body to the  waist and the seamed curves act as detailing. The skirt is cut on a slight A-line and falls just past the knee. the fabric is a light wool that has a great texture worked into the weave. It is very simple yet classic with really good lines. A great little find. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a painted metal zipper at the back.
