1970s Grape Nylon John Kloss Gown

Stunning John Kloss in a vivid purple is super sexy. Made of slinky liquid jersey nylon, this piece would have originally been meant as lingerie but could be worn as intended, or worn out and about - if you are daring! All the hallmarks of John Kloss are there - a low plunge front, pretty fluttery cap sleeves, the loose cut that flows Grecian style from the empire waist and that trademark nylon he used† that has the slightest bit of sheen. I love the top stitched detailing all through the front. The color is more of a purple then what is showing, the close up label shot is the truest to it. There are NO color variations - that is the light only! Excellent condition.

Shoulders: 14" across
Bust: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: stretches 13-16" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Total length: 55" from shoulder to bottom hem

Unlined and slips over the head. There are NO color variations - it is the effect of the lighting in the photos. Color is closet in close up of label - but with a dash more purple to it.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML (6-8)
