1970s Nat Kaplan Couture Leopard Maxi

I love the subtle leopard/cheetah feel print on this piece! Its a refreshing change from that all to often too much version. This one is done on a silk jersey and in a soft olive taupe on a pale cafe au lait back drop. Long skinny sleeves, narrow shoulders and a bodice that skims over the body widen to a full, full sweeping, super model length skirt. It has a wide and long sash that you can tie at the waist as I have, or use it at the neck or even wrapped turban style. The dress looks fabulous with or without it! A great piece! Excellent, seemingly unworn condition!

Sleeves: 22"
Shoulders: 14.5"
Bust: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Waist: to 16" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Hips: to 24" flat across from side seam to side seam with stretch
Length: 57" from neck to bottom hem

Unlined with a back painted metal & nylon zipper. The sash belt is original to the dress and also in excellent condition. A smaller frame like the mannequin will fit it looser and draped as shown.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML
