1970s Halston Tie Front Sheath Dress

An amazing Halston made of a slinky nylon jersey in a taupe brown. Halston best and most iconic designs center around the concept of as few seams as possible and working around bias cut fabric so a dress that seems most unassuming on the hanger transforms and drapes itself miraculously on a girl when it is slipped on. This little beauty is a perfect example of just that. It has no closures - you just step into it and tie the top center knot of fabric above a small keyhole to keep it on. The dress then drapes from there and is cleverly cut on a spiral. Super sexy in that perfectly understated, girl next door kind of way Halston has with his pieces. It is in excellent condition and truly fabulous!

Bust: 17" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 18" from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" from side seam to side seam
Total length: 43" from top of bodice at the back to bottom hem

The fabric has some stretch and is cut on the bias so you can comfortably add or subtract an inch or two to any of the listed measurements above

The dress is unlined and slips on to wear. You tighten the front knot to hold it in place.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML-MED
