Documented 1970 Malcolm Starr Printed Jersey Baby Doll Dress

Absolutely gorgeous Malcolm Starr dress with superb detailing. Since selling it I have been able to document it to 1970 with a reference photo from Vogue. The exterior is made of an unusual soft knit jersey that has the feel of an expensive T-shirt fabric. This would have been cutting edge to make a dress out of this when this was made! That, combined with the gold ribbon detailing that highlights the cut of the bodice and shoulders really make for a wonderful dress. The front is deeply plunged and angles down into an empire waistline. This plunge is edged with a gold ribbon for a bit of glitz. Each sleeve is kept very simple. The skirt is quite full and flows out from the high waistline baby doll style. An attached tie in the same fabric wraps around the waist. Lovely lines, well made and a stunning details - all add up to really wonderful dress - classic, wonderfully made and in excellent condition.

Fully lined in a deep blue silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper.I think the front was opened a bit but I love it that plunged so left it - it would be easy to tack together if you wanted a more modest look
