1970s Jean Muir Hand Painted Blue Jersey Smock Dress
Jean Muir is renowned for her cut and her use of fluid flowing jerseys and this piece is an outstanding example of just that. It is so chic in person and although it really needs a real body under it to show it off to its full advantage you can see the potential. The full cut does not do justice on the mannequin and I think the person that snatches it up will be more then happy when they see this one in person. The base fabric is made from her signature jersey and it had a wonderful drape and movement to it. The fabric has been hand screened and painted with colorful dashes of color from top to bottom. It is cut very loose through the body. It has an almost flapper feel that is mixed with a baby doll cut. This cut will make it very forgiving, and flattering, on lots of body types. There are hidden pockets tucked along the side seams and an attached tie at the neck. An interesting fact about her pieces - each of her dresses were made one at a time and by one single person start to finish. This singular attention shows in the quality of her garments.
