1970s Black Drape Mollie Parnis Dress

This is a very unusual silk jersey dress or tunic by Mollie Parnis. It is so out of what she normally does that I had to have it despite it having a couple of teeny flaws (see below). I just knew this is the kind of piece some edgy girl could style to her hearts content! The fabric is fluid, slinky jersey that instantly drapes into place when on. It has a plunging front neckline and an even deeper plunging back . The sides are cut as wide as the bottom but once on these drape into soft side folds. Its light enough that you can belt it and wear it as a shorter tunic or as a dress, leave it loose, layer it. Great condition. Item# DD978
