1970s Donald Brooks Silk Salmon Shift

Pretty raw silk salmon colored Donald Brooks with a flat knife pleat detailing that runs down the front on both sides of the buttons. You can wear it loose and shift-like or use the original tie belt to cinch in the waist. The buttons are very unusual - each pair is set on a gold toned link - much like a mans tuxedo shirt. A modesty flap runs along behind them but this button detail makes the whole front closure very interesting. Very sweet and easy to wear. Condition present excellent but there is one small flaw to note - please read below.

Unlined and closes with the front round buttons. Each cuff closes with a button as well. Hidden pockets along the hip seam. There is a faint mark under one arm. You cant see it when on and I honestly did not even see it until I went to post it and had it flat in strong light. I have cut the price dramatically down because of it. It presents perfectly when on.
