1970s Betsey Johnson Alley Cat Cherry Dress

Iconic! The vibrant cherry print on a vivid lime green nylon jersey says it all! A print that Betsy revisited throughout her career is perhaps shown here for the first time! The cut is simple and it slips on to wear. We even spotted Betsy Johnson wearing this exact dress herself on her new reality show!

Unlined and slips on to wear. There is two teeny runs (1/4" and 1/2" respectively) in the fabric under one arm that appear stable and did not increase with cleaning. Presents well and otherwise has no flaws.

Sleeves: 21"
Bust: 17-18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14-15" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19-21" flat across from side seam to side seam
