1960s Pom Pom Tassle Dior Wool Dress

I know I tend to list a of high visual impact pieces but sometimes the subtle pieces are just as fantastic! This Dior dress is form the Marc Bohan era and it is really a fabulous and chic day piece. Constructed of a light weight grey wool is is deceptively simple at first glance - just a simple A-line, high necked day shift. However upon closer inspection you must appreciate the remarkable seaming that creates that funnel like neck and adds an almost smock like feel to the front. I love how the neckline is a made of precise seams all slanted slightly to narrow the fabric to encircle the neck. The addition of the tie belt that is finished in wool yarn pom poms is just the type of couture feeling details one would expect form a house like Dior! Excellent condition!

Sleeves: 22"
Shoulders: 14.5"
Bust: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Waist: to 16" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Hips: to 24" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Length: 57" from neck to bottom hem

Fully lined in silk and closes with a fine, back metal zipper and hook & eye at the back neck. Each cuff has a hidden snap. The belt is original to the dress and the wool yarn pom poms show a light bit of patina - please super size the close up to view. If worn without the belt it has a more shift shape to it. The color is slightly lighter then shown - it is closest to the color seen in the pom pom shot.
