1970s Alley Cat Betsey Johnson Wrap Dress

Love this panne velvet early Alley Cat wrap dress by Betsy Johnson. It actually wraps and closes at the back and then ties at the front - a clever little twist on a classic design. This also allows a deep and sexy plunge on the front and the back. The belt is attached and has a pretty contrasting print that gives a nice visual pop against the rest of the print. Excellent condition

Unlined and wraps to close and ties.
