Spring 1976 Missoni Black & White Dot Print Liquid Jersey Plunge Bare Back Dress

This dress is insanely sexy. It is made out of one of there signature jerseys that is so light and fine that is feels and moves like liquid on the body. When you are standing still it is deceptive as to just how much fabric there is in the dress. There are yards of it, it is just so light and fine that it falls into a more sleek column until you move. The fabric is covered with a fine black and white dot pattern that gives it a graduated design when seen from a distance. They have cleverly played with the placement of the dots to create a secondary stripe feeling pattern with the pattern. This adds length to the wearer in a subtle, gorgeous way. It is unlined and simply ties at the neck which allows you to decide just how low the front triangles should sit. At the back it is cut very low and again the lower you tie it the lower the back dip will sit. However good it looks on the mannequin it looks and feels even better in real life. Excellent condition with one small note to review below.

Unlined, slips on and ties into place at the back of the neck. One side of the ties at the neck is slightly shorter then the other. There is the tinniest of yellowing to the white dots on both sides. You do not notice it all once on because of the pattern., Please review the last photo after the label shot. The fabric has stretch and should fit a variety of  sizes.
