1970s Jean Muir Printed Jersey Dress w Incredible Art Deco Buttons
Jean Muir is renowned for her wonderfully cut clothing and her use of fluid flowing jerseys. This gorgeous little dress is an outstanding example of both of those things with the added bonus of having some of the most amazing buttons I have ever seen on a dress. It is so chic in person. Her dresses really do need a real body under them to show the cut and drape off to full advantage and the dress form never does one full justice. 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 done in two tones of blue plus a white. It has an almost forties feel to it with its top stitching and gathered seaming details. The neckline plunges and buttons with amazing, elongated diamond, or marquis shaped, buttons that run down the front. These unique buttons also sit on each cuff. It also has its original slip buckle belt that cinches in the waist. 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. Excellent condition
