1970s Glass Button Donald Brooks Dress

This is a gorgeous jersey Donald Brooks dress in the most amazing coral colour! I love the ease of the fabric and the killer drape - it is a slinky synthetic jersey with a smooth finish and really has a fantastic look to it - it also is easy to wear and to pack! The faceted glass button detailing is the perfect contrast to the jersey - it's an ingenious way to give it a little glitz without ruining the perfect simplicity of the jersey. It has its original, extra long tie belt. There is lots of fabric in the skirt and I love the fluid jersey sleeves that each end with a bit of a balloon effect at each cuff. Excellent condition!

Sleeves: 24"
Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: 16" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" flat across the back from side seam to side seam

Unlined and buttons at the front with hidden snaps to hold it perfectly in place. The buttons are faceted glass - very pretty! The original belt is present and looped at one end.
