1970s Red Moss Crepe Corset Ossie Clark

Girls who buy Ossie Clark dresses can become addicted -they transform when on a girl and it is very hard to resist that. Certain styles are a bit rarer then others and this one, in bright and true red moss crepe, is a rare one. A mile long tie that acts as a corset, threads through a series of fabric loops set along a seam inset along the waist. You can tie and wrap and cinch - or not- in as many ways as you can think up! I have shown it tied and cinched in the most basic of ways but you could come up with dozens of alternatives. When not tied the dress is actually a loose fitting smock dress that comes out from the shoulders in that classic Ossie Clark cut. Modified leg of mutton sleeves, a smocked back panel and dog ear collar add the perfect finishes. Excellent condition.

Shoulders: 15" across
Bust: open
Waist: can go as wide as 17" across and cinch as little as 12"
Hips: open
Total length: 40" from mid-back of the neck to bottom hem
Sleeve length: approx 22" from shoulder to cuff
